Basic WinXP Prifile for games...

Hi guys,

I want to create an auxillary profile simply for playing games. I know how to create a new profile, but how do I keep the PC from starting up all of my "fluff" applications? Furthermore, how do I determine what is required to be started on that profile?

Thanks in advance for your help.

-Nathan A.

there are 4 places that you need to worry about, in two categories :)

Applications that open for any user on the computer:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Applications that run for only the "current user"
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

move the shortcuts/registry values to/from the places corresponding to which account you want them to start on.
