As long as the domain user is in the local Administrators group, the user should have un-restricted access to the computer. If you login with a domain admin account, do you have unrestricted access?

To test further, create a new domain user account, add it to the local Administrators group and login using that account on the workstation. Does that account have unrestricted access?

HTH...

If the user has restrictions placed on them by a GPO in AD, the restrictions will apply irrespective of what rights they have on the machine. You need to know where these restrictions are being applied before finding a solution:

What is the OU structure in AD?
Is the GPO applying the restriction based on the machine or the user?
What is the restriction that is affecting the user?

Depending on the answers, there are a number of options:

Create a new OU and GPO for this user/machine underneath the existing one, set inherit all existing policies and use the GPO to overwrite only the policies which are preventing the user from working. (This would be ideal - if a different user had the same issue, moving their acccount to the new OU would solve the problem)
Place an ACL on the GPO preventing it from applying to your user/machine (Useful for troubleshooting, but overkill for a long term fix, and may cause more problems than it fixes)
And many more, probably as many options as there are AD deployment scenarios.

Cheers

Yes, GPO restrictions are applied to the machine *after* local policies.
