You can't, not easily. Move the computer into a new OU which does not come under the scope of (and therefore does not inherit) the GPO in question, then you can link further GPOs to that OU specifically to that computer if necessary.

It's very easy! Use security filtering.

If you don't want GPO1 to apply to PC1:
Go to the properties of GPO1, open the security tab, add PC1 and deny 'apply group policy'

If you want GPO1 to apply only to PC1:
Go to the properties of GPO1, open the security tab, add PC1 and allow 'apply group policy' and allow 'read'. Delete the authenticated users group from this tab.

Good luck!
