How do I get rid of Internet Explorer Maintenance settings still being pushed?

My DC is Server 08 STD.  My workstations are Win 7.  My workstations are still getting a GP pushed from a GPO using IEM settings for trusted sites.  

I've read up on this and what I want to do is stop that GP from being applied, but of course, my RSAT tools on my Win 7 box don't show IEM and the GP on the server itself shows that IEM settings as empty.

So, how do I stop a GPO from applying if I can't even get to it to edit?

I did find a post about right clicking and resetting browser settings on the IEM module, but there are a TON of settings in there that I want to keep.

Am I stuck re-writing an entirely new policy using preferences and deleting the old policy?
