If you can't use separate user accounts in your operating system (as 
suggested), an alternative would be to launch pidgin with the -c command 
line argument to specify the configuration directory. Just make a copy 
of the pidgin shortcut and modify the "Target" in the copy to pass the 
command line argument, something like:

      C:\Path\To\Pidgin.exe -c C:\Path\To\Alternate\Config\

The first time you fire it up using this shortcut, pidgin will create 
the new configuration directory.
