I have a GPO that deploy a screensaver settings.  The changes are made under User configuration but I enable User Group Policy loopback processing so I can apply to group of workstations as well.

Question, if I want to configure so that a particular user or machine do not get this GPO, do I do this from "delegation" or from "security filtering" of the GPO?

Please advise the exact steps?

We use Windows 2008 servers.  

Many thanks.

Use security filtering.
Instead of "authenticated users", which you should remove, you will create and insert the group screensaver which holds all users that should get it into that policies' ACL. Give that group the right to read and apply the policy, that's it.
