Hi,

Open the WSUS snap in from Administrative Tools.

Expand Computers, then All Computers, click Update Services Client Computers.

Click the computer you do not want to receive updates, on the right hand side click Change Memebership.

Here you can now select which groups it will be a member of. Unselect it's current membership then check Update Services Excluded Computers.

Hope this helps.
