I created a few test GPOs, and I want to completely get rid of them.  Do I need to use Adsiedit to do that, or is some other tool?

To permanently delete a GPO from the list, select it from the list and click the Delete button. Then, when prompted, select Remove the link and delete the Group Policy object permanently. Be careful when deleting an object, because the GPO may be associated with another site, domain, or OU. If you want to remove a GPO from the list, select the GPO from the links list, click Delete, and then when prompted, select Remove the link from the list.
