I have a few users who need some of the features in Ease of Access (Windows 7 workstations) enabled.  However, I have a global group policy for my student body that locks the Control Panel selections to Display and Internet Options only.  Also, for good reasons, the users cannot be placed in another OU.  What are my options?  I've read up on Security and WMI filtering but I can't see how they can help.

My AD server is running Windows Server 2008 R2.
