OK
open Regedit and browse to  "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy"

Now delete ALL Keys that start with "S-"

now move into "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\GroupMembership"

Now delete ALL Keys that start with "S-"

Exit Regedit
Reboot.

If the computer is no longer on the domain then you can actually run the gpupdate /force /boot command to reset the machine settings back to default.
