Open up ConsoleOne with the ZENworks snapins installed.  Find your policy package objects wherever they may have been created.  Look for one that probably has "Workstation Policy" or "Workstation Package" in the name.  Right click Properties of it.  Choose the correct OS from the tab that starts with General.  Find the Windows Group Policy policy and remove the check mark.  That will disable the group policies from being deployed via ZENworks but still keep your application launcher working fine.

will this enable me to create a policy in AD and deploy it without conflict?

As long as the policy has never been cached onto the workstation/into the registry (because you clicked the check box about keeping policies enforced even after logout---a very bad thing to do and is not done by default) there should no remenants of the GP pushed down by ZEN.  You should be able to configure/enable any lockdown from AD that you did from ZEN because they both effectively use the same control .adm files.  And they both basically use the same management (MMC) snapin, the Group Policy Editor.

Hope that helps.
