Disabling Group Policy on Windows 7

The articles below show how to disable background group policy refresh, the feature that can get really annoying, depending on the level of detail applied. Things like disabling setting the small icons on start menu is a particularly annoying one. Some customization features should be left to the users to choose simply because it makes them more productive.
For editing the registry the administrative credentials are required.
