Default OT Windows Experts: Dual profiles on startup

Google search returned a bizzillion resultes on Dual Boot for OS, which isnt what I want to do, I have one OS and want to keep it that way = )

Anyways I would like to have tow profiels, on that loads a minimal set of programs for when I game, and another that loads all the extra crap so it looks pretty ext for when I am just using the puter for productivity.

From what I can tell diabling items in msconfig is global, so just disabling items there wont work.

anyone else have any ideas?

Well... I don't even know if it would work/is possible. My thinking is along the lines of how you can install software for a specific user only... for example, you might be able to cut some corners by starting fresh with the OS minimally installed, log in as user A and install the productivity things "for this user only" if you can, then do the same with user B and your gaming stuff. I imagine though that most of your resources are being used by OS stuff that you can't disable on a user-by-user basis.

In other words, I don't have any good ideas.

Virtual PC or VM for all general purpose stuff, and the base OS for all of your gaming.

multi profiles does not have to use global settings
there is a way to make them different, using user groups or something
