How do I "undelegate" a user group in AD?

In our Active Domain we have delegated a security group to have the right to add computers to another OU. How do I "undelegate" that user group if the need arises?

We thought it would be better to place the users in the group, and delegate the group with the thought that it would be easier to change group membership than to manage individual users.
You are correct -- it's best to have functions and responsibilities assigned through group memberships rather than simply on a user-by-user basis. Un-delegating a responsibility from a group is as simple as deleting their privilege for that action from the Active Directory policy manager.
