Hi,

Is their any way, by GPO, to deny AD computer login based on AD group membership? E.g. If a user is a member of group 'Test 1', he/she will not be able to login to a PC with the relevant GPO applied...

sure, just deny the logon locally right to members of that group.  Done.

this can be done on the local computer policy of that PC, not neccessarily a GPO.

i'm sure it can be done with a GPO, but the easiest way is the method i mentioned above.

start>run>MMC to open up the MMC (microsoft management console)
file>add/remove snapin> choose add, then choose Group Policy
then choose the computer you want to manage (if you aren't physically on it alread)
then browse down to computer configuration>windows settings>security settings>local policies>user rights assignment> and then choose deny logon locally....
then put the group in the deny logon locally section and you are done.

MAKE SURE YOU DONT CHOOSE A GROUP THAT INCLUDES EVERYONE OR ELSE NOBODY WILL BE ABLE TO LOG INTO THAT MACHINE

close the MMC (you dont need to save it) the save option saves the MMC settings for later use, not the changes you just made.
