I've created a custom ADM to change the users default shell when they log in.

The .adm I created is below  I changed the .exe for this example.  It shows in the Administrative templates, but there is no option to enable etc it.  When I log into a machine with the user the Explorer shell is used.

server: 2003  in a Domain
workstation:  xp

CLASS USER

CATEGORY "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"
KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon"

 POLICY "Shell"
  PART "Shell"
  EDITTEXT
  DEFAULT "JustATest.exe"
  VALUENAME "Shell"
  END PART
 END POLICY

END CATEGORY
