Just a thought...

But, move the startup programs to the profile that you want them to run in(move from all users to the users name) and then write a script that does a Net Stop on all the services you want disabled and place it in the startup of the account that should have them stopped in.

I am not sure how to write a script to use Net Stop. Is there any other way you can do this? I am not really a programer

really simple

just create a file and name it stopsvcs.cmd

in the file place the command with the quotes and just substitute "service name" with a service to stop. repeat in the same file for each service you wish to stop.

net stop "service name"

i.e.- net stop "computer browser"
