Active directory group policies – how to enumerate them without admin rights

Today I came across problem with my Internet Explorer 8, where I want to check why some of the intranet sites are shown into compatibility mode, where according to browser setting they should not. As none of the browser setting point to it I suspected that this can get to me machine thru group policies. Unfortunately as I do not have admin rights on AD I had a problem how to enumerate them.

and now I know who did it to me 🙂
