Please provide me with instructions on how to fully delete a group policy object (GPO) within Server 2012 Standard.

I need to be sure that the entire GPO gets deleted, not just the link to it.

Go down to the Group Policy Objects folder in GPMC and delete the GPO there. That will clear it out. Deleting it anywhere else just deletes that specific link.
