Here's my challenge: I do two differnt types of work (previously I ran two separate computers for these but I want to run just one):
1) every day work in MS Office, Internet-access, other apps
2) Intense large-video editing and audio mixing
For the first use I want lots of background apps running to protect me (anti-virus, firewalls, etc).
For #2 I want a minimum-background app system setup in order to have no interrupts and lots of power on tap.
I am running an Intel 6700 Duo.
How do I set up two separate O/S or setup versions to achieve each of these on the same computer system?
thanks in advance,

not sure what you mean, but firs off you don't' need lots of background apps running to keep you safe.

anti virus = nod32 very light low CPU
firewall Sygate pro very light low CPU
anti spy ware = spysweeper run it only once a week for cleaning.

that is it very light, and low CPU

thats my setup and I do lots more then all of the stuff you are talking about.

if you really want a good setup to be able to do stuff freely its your ram not how you setup the PC.

you got a c2d how much ram you got with that?

setup another user and log in as that user. He will only have what you give him.
