we have 120 users at our office. All they use our local domain network.
when we created windows 2008 Group Policy we created policy for all users.

Now one user wants diffrent policy. How can i do a group policy only for this person but this person also uses other old policy too.

    its simple.

    create two OU in your AD
    all users on first OU
    1 user on second OU

    apply default GPO on first OU
    apply default GPO and new GPO on second OU.

    On the one user policy remove authenticated users from security filtering and apply to him directly. Leave the other policy as is.

    You can create multiple GP from GPMC. Once you do so, you can add user to scope of that GP.
    Download and install GPMC(Group Policy Management console) of you dont have it
    Open GPMC > Expand Domain > > Group Policy object > You can see all GP over here
