Controlled startup services

Hi

I`ve just bought SO and it looks great, though it doesn`t solve my problem.

My son has received for Christmas Ages of Empire III, which freezes on my configuration (Sempron 2800+, 1 Go RAM, XP Home). Using the "msconfig" utility, I determined that there was a conflict with a non microsoft service (not program), but I have so many of them that I can`t check one by one.

I created a new user for him, but if I disable with msconfig all non microsoft services for him, the game plays fine but those services are also disabled for me. This is why I bought SO, hoping that I could define which services would start on my account and which would not on his.

I managed it in SO with programs, but not with services.

Can you help?

Thanks in advance. Best regards.

I am sorry, but we haven`t implemented the way to disable services temporarily on a schedule or for a certain user. All services are system-wide, so they affect all users.
