Is there a way to set up xp so that you can have different services stopped
or running for different users? Tired of my favorite games blue screening
xp due to services running I don't need when playing, but do need when
connected to the internet. Any help appreciated.
Thanx

No but you can set them to manual, then create a shell script on the desktop
with some lines like;
net start "service name"

(note: as long as they're not critical operating system services)
