PC removed from the domain prohibits file download.  Might there be a group policy left in place that is the cause of this?  The user is a local admin

If you run gpedit.msc there are the group policis try there. But maybe is the firewall that is blocking the exe files.

there should be no GPO left after you removed the machine from the domain.
However, IE configuration may remain in the registry (like trusted zones).
You may have to clear the registry.

GPO related registry settings reside at HKLM\Software\Microsoft\ Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\GPExtensions  
You might check out if something remained after you removed computer from domain.
