programs not appearing for stand users on same pC

Got a new laptop with Vista pre installed. Good spec and vista started up fine. Created an additional standard user account to work with in addition to the admin account.

Installed office XP and Google earth under the admin account as recommended by Vista. These all worked fine so install ok.

Switched to the standard user and could not locate any of the programs I had just installed.

Switched back to admin user and programs still there and running fine.

Back to standard user - cannot even find programs when using the search facility on the start bar.

Unable to find any userful help. Am I missing something? How can other users use the programs (and desktop icons) which have been installed by the administrator? There must be an easy way as other programs exist on both desktop like adobe for instance.
