The title says it all. I got 2 accounts. How do I disable some programs with msconfig on that particular account but not on the other account?

Download this free program from Microsoft Technet. (if link fails, google "autoruns for windows")

Download to Desktop; 2x-click on autoruns.exe, allow it to scan the registry (status on bottom-left of screen)

Click on the user tab - you will see numerous user accounts - choose one and then click on the "logon" tab - un-check the boxes for those items you wish that particular user not to have run at logon; repeat for others

I hope this helps.
