Win 7 Enterprise - standalone

On a users take home computer I'm getting 'policy prevent the installation of drivers' for the wireless card.

Under the GPO > Computer Config > Admin templates > System > Device installation restrictions > 'prevent installation of devices...' I have it set to Disabled.

Where else is this 'policy' present that prevent the installation of a wireless card driver?

What I would suggest doing is running the Resultant Set of Policy on that computer.

Start->Run
mmc.exe

File->Add/Remove Snap-In
Add the Resultant Set of Policy Snap In and OK

When the console opens, right click Resultant Set of Policy->Generate new RSoP data
Choose Logging Mode, This Computer and then either the current logged in user, or choose the user who is unable to install the drivers.

Once done, you will be able to see all of the policies that have been applied
