If there is a scenario where it is required to disable the loading of group policy objects for an individual machine/PC without moving the computer account, it is possible to do so locally from the PC.

Method 1

Locate / create the following Registry DWORD key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\DisableGPO

Setting for Value Data: [0 = Allow Group Policy / 1 = Disable Group Policy]

Method 2

Ensure the user logging on does not have access to the %systemroot%\system32\GroupPolicy directory.
