Hi,

I beleive you can do this by delegating the particular users's OU (Right click the OU where the user resides and delegate)>>Add the appropriate user>>select the task which you would like to assign to that user I.e - Cretae, delete, and manage user accounts or Read all user informations etc..

This way you can assign the task to the user.

Drop them into the account operators group in AD, they'll be able to do it without them having too much access,.

Ok, in which case I'd either say if you can't trust them then don't give them the task or as above go through each and every OU that has users and modify that with the rights required.

Depending on your OU structure that could take a while.

If you do not want to give much access, you can have a look at this utility (http://www.manageactivedirectory.com/) by which you can proficiently manage users right access when they modify others profile in active directory.

3.) Selected "Create Custom Task to Delegate"

4.) Selected "Only the Following Objects" and ticked User Object

I have pointed you in the right direction and you are simply closing the question without assigning any point which is concerned.
