Active directory, apply GPO to one group, only on a specific computer

i got a group called, specialGroup.
that should have no acccess to task manager only one computer called computer1.

how can i use GPO, to disable that.

i created the GPO.
i created a new OU, and put computer1 in in it.
i used filtering to apply it only on Specialgroup.

that did not work.
it only works when i put the GPO on the entire domain, instead of the OU it self !!

any ideas ?

Disable Task Manager is a policy under the "User Configuration" tree of Group Policy, and hence does not apply directly to computer objects.

You will need to enable loopback processing mode to have user configuration policies apply in a computer context. More details on that here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc978513.aspx

Be sure to understand precisely how this works (the above link describes in more detail), and to do this in your policy itself, so its scope is limited. You should also make a decision between "Replace" and "Merge" options; if you don't want any other policies which would normally apply to the user, then replace works (often relevant in a kiosk example), otherwise it is often good to err on the side of caution and select "merge".

i tried merge, and i tried replace, both ways, the policy was not applied

when i check group policy result for that user on that computer.
i noticed some that are denied and some that are applied.

but the GPO in question is not listed as any, not denied nor applied, it is  not even there
