How to disable desktop folder redirection for certain users in Group Policy

This this is killing me. I dont like GPO...

I created a new GPO called Desktop folder redirection for desktop folder redirections, I then created a two new OUs one workstations and one laptops. I then moved laptops to the laptops OU and workstations to the workstations OU. In security of both GPO I have "auth users". From some reason it does not take effect. I even restarted the laptop like 4 times. Desktop icons are still being mapped and I am getting an access error when trying to login to profile of a laptop not connected to the network. What am I missing here?

Maybe I should place with the security of each GPO
