    No worries, As i have one tool which can help you in a way in which you want. That tool is Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). this tool will provide you a unified graphical user interface (GUI) that makes Group Policy much easier to use. Backup/restore of Group Policy objects (GPOs), Import/export and copy/paste of GPOs and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filters, Simplified management of Group Policy–related security, HTML reporting for GPO settings and Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) data, Scripting of Group Policy related tasks that are exposed within this tool.

    Well, here you have one bad news if you are using the windows 7 that GPMC can not work with the windows 7. But still i have another tool which you can use to edit the settings of the selected user on the group. Using lusrmng.msc is a tool by which you can add as many as users to a group. if you have created already then there is a secpol.msc by which you can modify the security policies of that acount, including firewall policies, software restriction.
