Default How do I remove desktop icons from Guest user?

Guest user accounts are, by default, "Limited Use". Whenever I download
anything it appears on that desktop page too. I can't remove these icons
because it's a "Limited Use" account. Any suggestions?

Log on with an account that has Administrator rights. Open Windows Explorer
and navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Desktop. (Where user
name is the Guest Account that you wish to configure.) Delete the icons in
that Desktop folder.
