Allowing local guest account on domain joined computer

I want to allow the local guest account on a windows 7 machine that is domain joined.
I have enabled it in the local guest user but when logging on I get an error "You cannot log on because the logon method you are using is not allowed on this computer".
I guess I have a GPO overriding the local policy but not sure where / what ?
Again this is for the machine local guest account, not the domain guest.

On the local machine, this usually includes the groups Administrators; Backup Operators; Users.  On the local machine users and groups, domain users should also be a member of the local users group.

What can mess that up?  Domain policy which will override the local policy.  e.g. the domain controller's policy will make sure users can't log onto domain controllers.  Use the resultant set of policy to see what the computer's resultant policy is with domain policy applied.  Chances are, somone put a policy in place that rewrites this policy setting at the domain level and users can no longer log on interactively.  You can also use domain policy to specify group memberships and this could also mess things up if domain users are no longer members of the local user's group.

If your issue is with all domain computers, then look at domain policies because this is the common thread to all the computers.
