Windows 7 Customizing Guest Desktop Changes Administrator's Desktop Too

My friend set up a guest account on his computer for me to use.

Windows7 copied the administrator's desktop icons to the guest account desktop, where I deleted them.

Deleting those icons also deleted them on the administrator's account.

Is this the way it's supposed to work?
