Default Extra Users?

Yeah, this is a really newbish question... but does making an extra user account in Windows (administrator) slow down the system in anyway (Memory, boot-up time, etc...)?

A lot of "thoughts" and "thinks" flying around.

Does anyone know for certain?

I would have no idea how to diagnose the symptoms of a slow-down. That's why I asked.

Nope not unless you're logged on with all of them on the same PC at the same time.

If user accounts slowed people down, my system with 50 of them wouldnt do well :/

(over 1000 accounts on some non windows boxes i've dealt with)

I see... so as long as only one's logged, it's fine?
