Our network here pushes group security policies to the machines.  Several of these machines run software that has problems with a few of the policies.  I need to be able to block these policies from being applied to the machines in questions.  The machines run windows 2000 pro with SP4 and all the updates.  The network here uses a domain and these machines are on the domain.

It is a very large network and requests like that take time to get pushed through channels.  I am going that route, but in the interim I need to be able to do it from my end without involving the network admin.

The only way you can Block these Policies from being applied to a pc, is specifing it in the GPO.
If you give the Pc or user the Deny access to the GPO in the Security settings, it won't apply to the pc.

You should really have your network split up in to organisational units - basically folders with either specific users or computers. This will allow you to specify different policies depending on the unit e.g. finance department will have a different policy compared to the support department.

If the network is not layed out like this then it wont take much time to sort you can just copy the policies over.

Hope this helps
