Hot to create an empty Windows Profile?

Is there any way to create a new Windows profile with nothing installed just like when you install WIndows from scratch? I need to create a profile that loads faster and don't open resident programs like antivirus, IMs, etc; I want it to quickly see movies without wait everything to load and reduce battery consumption.

SMTP and Outlook 97

I have a machine running Outlook 97. Somehow, the SMTP server has become changed to 'net' (that's all it says - it should be nameofdomain.com). I am unable to change this back - every time I try, the next time Outlook goes to send and receive, it attempts to locate 'net' again. Any idea what's going on here? Google is little help on such generic keywords and the MS knowledge base doesn't seem able to help. Spyware check reveals nothing. XP Home.
