In looking through my boxes of software manuals, the most common usage I
found was "User's Guide." Apple and Claris manuals use this form and
it's what I prefer. I found one each from Adobe and UMAX named "User
Guide" ("User Manual" seems to be fairly common also). I don't have any
named "Users Guide" or "Users' Guide."
