    I have some performance issues which affect only my user account. The guest account is fine, as is a test account I created.

    Can anyone talk me though what I'd lose if I created a second account and switched to using that? I assume all my apps would be available but I'd lose all preferences? My bookmarks and mail would presumably be gone (I can restore those). Anything else?

    What else do I need to consider?
