She didn't want me going/to go with her
She didn't want me going/to go with her to the party in case I cramped her style.
Many dictionaries include the construction of 'not want sb doing sth'. For instance, in Macmillan, I don't want the children fooling around when I have guests.
What's the difference between 'not want sb to do sth' and 'not want sb doing sth'?
Thank you in advance.

Reason: one sentence added.
Re: She didn't want me going/to go with her
There is no practical difference in meaning.
