We have an Active Directory group that controls the install of Adobe Reader X for all of our European users (500+). Unfortunately the person who packaged this has left but they gave Domain Users access to this. What I'm looking to do is push out a new version of Adobe Reader XI to our European user base and also remove the AppV group.

Obviously I dont want to go in brute force so currently I'm going to test it on a few users first but I cant seem to remove the AppV group for particular test users. What I'm doing (which is most likely wrong) is I've created a new Active Directory group, I've added TestUser1 into that group. I've then added that group into the Security of the Adobe Reader X group and given it Deny. I assumed that would remove Adobe Reader X from TestUser1's laptop but it doesnt seem to.

I've run a gpupdate /force but I can still open the old verison. gpresult /r shows the Deny group I added it too.

How do I go about removing the application for particular users/groups?
