Question: if I was to add a user account, like "Gamer Profile" and I do some tweaks in the registry. Does this effect the whole computer? Or just this profile?
In other words, I want to tweak my comp so that when I game, I use the best performance possible. And when I just do other comp work, surf the web, I use the standard settings. If it don't work the way I want it, I just delete that profile, I also delete those tweaks?

I'm no registry expert, but my understanding is that some registry entries are account specific, whereas others will affect all accounts. So it really depends on which entries you're talking about.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
