Hi,

I logged in as Domain Admin to Windows 7 pro pc and the strange thing was that I could not  run, Windows Updates, could not launch regeidt... basically  I don't have Domain Admin rights to do anything! Also the IE home page is preset to company website.

If I login as local admin I can be able to run Windows update and load regedit....  I know it is something to do with Group Policy that I was not the one created it. Can someone tell me where the Group Policy I can check to fix this problem?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Then the best thing to do is to use the group policy management console and then run a group policy results query against your account on the machine in question.  That will tell you what policies are affecting your account on that machine.
