Is it possible for different user accounts to have different services run when logged on?

I had a friend call me and he has a little music studio setup at his house that he runs from his rig. Basically he wants minimal services running under his account (Internet connection disabled, no antivirus, ect.) and his wife would like everything running. Off the top of my head I would have said that disabling services from starting up in msconfig would be the way to go, but as it turns out, it anything disabled seems to go for all users.

Any advice on how to do it? Or is it not really possible?

He is running XP Home (939, A64 rig).
