If you go under tools:folder options:view and "hide protected operating system files" isn't checked, then you should see a desktop.ini file in your my music folder.

Its probably different for Windows Vista, but under windows 7 this is all that's in that file:

[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell 32.dll,-21790
InfoTip=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-12689
IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-108
IconFile=%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll
IconIndex=-237

If that file doesn't exist in your my music folder, you could try just creating a text document, renaming it to desktop.ini and pasting that text into it. It probably won't work since I'm using 7 but its worth a try.
You could also go into that guest account, and copy that desktop.ini
