If you wanted to totally isolate them you could run each in their own virtual machine ==> http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/

Hope this helps

There is a preconfigured XP VM that you can download that has some nice integration features ... you should be able to install most x86/x64 OS's - provided that you have enough spare RAM and CPU cycles.  I had FreeBSD running in a Virtual PC VM on my laptop.  Can't say I have tried Win7 in a VM though.  If you run in to trouble with Virtual PC you could always try VMWare instead ==> http://www.vmware.com/products/player/overview.html
