Lets see here.....

I'll be simple.

I'm an online gamer. I have a ton of applications I run in the background, for normal computer use. Ofcourse, when I want to game, all these applications aren't my best friend, as they do tend to take up valuable resources, which can ofcourse affect the gaming experience. (processor usage, etc)

So basically what i'd like to have, is some sort of "game mode", that uses the absolute minimal resources needed, that I can log into. Basically, a "safe mode" if you will, but ofcourse a mode that will allow gameplay, with just no un-necessary applications in the background, no startup files (firewall, email checker, icq, etc), simple desktop, with just the game shortcuts etc. This way, I wont have to close applications one by one. Ofcourse, all this WITHOUT affecting the administrator account, for when I log back in.

I'm wondering exactly how I could do this, with Windows 2000, and the user accounts option. I am ofcourse administrator, so I can setup everything that is needed.
