Default DesktopS

Alright guys, im getting Win XP Pro with the computer im building today and id like to ask a question.

When i had win XP home everytime i downloaded or installed something the shortcut would show up on my dads desktop (login name). How can i get rid of this 'feature'? I want my login name to have nothing of what my dad installed and only what i installed and vise versa.

I heard it was possible so any help would be greatly appreciated!

EDIT: please reply fast im building this within the hour
