AD, deny permissions, just making sure.

Environ: 2008 STD domain, Windows 7 users.  

I have a GP that makes sure all icons in the task area are visible on all users' desktops.

I have one user who wants them all hidden and he's special so he gets what he wants.

I'm thinking I'll add him to the delegation tab, go into advanced and deny him the group policy.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

That is correct. One thing to watch for .. some of the GPO settings when you just deny, will not revert back to defaults. But instead stay set as they are now. If this happens, create a reversal GPO and apply it to set the settings back to default, apply it to your "special" user. Once it has applied, you can delete it and the denial on the original policy will be what you are looking for.
