If you're using loopback policy then it doesn't matter if you don't include Administrators. They will still apply the policies based on the location of the computer object unless you explicitly deny them the "Apply Group Policy" right.

You may need an explicit deny on the GPO so Administrators don't apply the policy.

Whenever I try to install a new program on my Terminal Server, a screen comes up that says the "Administrator has policies in effect to prevent this installation". However, I am the administrator, and I'm logged in as such. My GPO is set to not include administrators, and is set to allow admins to remotely install programs. However, I have tried remotely and locally, but get the same error. Any ideas?
