the AV for example will always run on the background within any profile, you can't exclude it that way by using a seperate user account because they run as services and filter drivers which alway start up before any user even logs in, they're machine startup items, not user oriented

if you have your suspicions, why don't you try disabling all your "crap" for one day and see how the game performs, then take it from there

What you need is a profile menu at boot.
Look here for more info.
I did theis before I got a cable modem. Had one profile for network and another profile for gameing that disabled all network, firewall, anti virus, etc for at home.
