Group policy - Software restriction policy not override

    We have added a hash rule to software restriction policy to "disallow" user
    from executing the Window Live messenger (msnmsgr.exe)

    However, we would like to allow certain group of people (ie: Customer
    service colleague) to run the Live Messenger, so I created an OU, then add
    another hash rule to msnmsgr.exe and set it to "unrestricted", and then put
    all customer service colleague in that OU.

    But I found that this does not work, it seems that the OU's "unrestricted"
    rule does not override the Default Group policy's "disallow" rule. And now
    all the customer service colleague cannot access Live Messenger.

    Would anyone can help on this ?
