VB.net get user account information from AD

I'm trying to build some code that will allow me to get user account information from Active Directory based on their user ID. The code I have so far is almost doing the job. I'm running into an issue where it's giving all the user accounts for AD instead of the properties for a single user. I know my searcher.Properties may be off but I'm not sure how to just search for the properties of a single user.

 Any help will be appreciated

        'Connect to AD Database
        Dim rootEntry As New DirectoryEntry("GC://DC=AD,DC=Domain,DC=com", Domain.Text + UserName.Text, Password.Text)

        'Set What you want to search for
        Dim searcher As New DirectorySearcher(rootEntry)
        searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("cn")
        searcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("mail")

        'Set Your Search Filter
        searcher.Filter = "(objectCategory=User)"

        'Finds all
        Dim queryResults As SearchResultCollection
        queryResults = searcher.FindAll()

        'Puts the results into a list Box
        Dim result As SearchResult
        For Each result In queryResults
            MessageBox.Show(result.Properties("cn")(0))
        Next
