Windows 7: Help with Group Policy/shell change for a single user?

Help with Group Policy/shell change for a single user?

Hey all,

I'm in the same boat as CIS was when he posted this thread:

Help with Group Policy?

I've googled and googled and read so much my head is about to explode but still haven't found what I'm looking for.

My end-goal is to change the shell for just a single user account. I poked around the registry for quite a bit after looking at some dated information on how to do it in there but couldn't find an equivilent key in Windows 7 (I believe the information was for XP). Then I discovered it can be done in the Group Policy Editor under User Configuration -> Admin Templates -> Sytem under "Custom User Interface", but this will change it for everyone it appears. My searching eventually led me here, so I decided to stop, and post for help

If anyone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated
