I use a custom logon shell on a machine (windows 7) for security reasons - which works fine by altering HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell.

However, I also want that the administrator will still be able to manage the machine, so I modified the user specific key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\shell

back to explorer.exe - but when I log on I get a single windows explorer window, and not the full desktop.

does any one know how to configure the normal desktop shell only to a specific user?
