I have an end user who is able to access the control panel after setting local group policy to prohibit access and Only his user profile can access it. The domain Admin the local admin or other users are prevented from accessing the control panel until I change the policy back.

Anybody know how this could happen? I've ran antivirus, malware scanners and found no threats. So I don't think its that.

In a domain environment a domain policy will override a local policy

Run gpresult /r check the policy settings

ran it on local machine - not sure what I'm looking for because of your vague reply but the only thing that looks remotely pertinent in the out put is the following:

Applied Group Policy Objects
    -----------------------------
        Default Domain Policy

    The following GPOs were not applied because they were filtered out
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
        Local Group Policy
            Filtering:  Not Applied (Empty)

Ok as I said before the domain policy is over riding the local

The report shows just that

So now you need to check the domain level policy

If you want that policy settings then you must enable it

Just remember that will effect all computers on the domain
