Thank you sage. i ahve read through the articles and i want to apply it  to a couple of accounts as a test. The directions aren't really clear. When I name the policy, I then hit the modify button to apply filter rules, i hit the drop down to find users, computers and group and then select the name of the person i want the policy to apply to correct?
