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.
