Cannot Join PC to Domain

When attempting to join a Windows 10 Pro PC to a Windows domain, I get the following error

The error occurred attempting to join the domain "xxxxxxxxxx"
The account is not authorized to log in from this station

I have tried to join a different Windows 10 PC to this domain and get the same results
I joined a Windows 7 PC to the domain a month ago

I have only one domain controller running Server 2008 R2 Standard

I have checked local security policies and disabled all group policies

Normal users can add only 10 machines to the domain. You should try with another domain account or just use a domain admin account.
Have you checked on the account properties (disabling group policies is not a good idea!)  Perhaps someone limited the workstations the user account was allowed to login to.
Go to Administrative Tools --> Active Directory Users and Computers --> Users -->The account you are using -->Right Properties -->Tab Account --< There is 2 buttons under account name --> Log On To...Check
