change local policy setting

My company utilizes the principle of least privilege. It is working so well that it is blocking me from accessing servers out of our domain. How can I troubleshoot policy settings to find the culprit?

What I'm doing: Using my Windows7 computer I successfully login to VPN but when I attempt to access the server I get a looping login prompt.

Test #1: Following the same login procedure but using my MAC I have no problems accessing the server.
Test #2: Using a spare Windows7 laptop that has not been added to my companies domain I have no problems accessing the server.
Test #3: Removing a Window7 laptop from the domain also fixes the issue.

I think this proves that when I computer is added to the domain policies/settings are pushed to the machine and one or more of those policy settings are blocking my access.

Any ideas of where I could start looking for the setting that needs to change?

Well, see what policies are active using gpresult and then strip off one after the other, do a gpupdate and test. To speed this up if you have , say 20 policies, take off 10, gpupdate, if no better, take of 5 (half of the remaining ones) and so on.
