Network Won't Let Me Use Aero????

So many of our users have the ability to change their Windows XP theme to the more aesthetically pleasing "Windows XP" theme, which presents curved lines, shading and a not so drab interface. However, I am able to do the same but not save it.

I just installed Windows7 on my machine as a test box, and prior to joining the domain, I was able to utilize the Aero effects. Once I logged into our network, I was not. I have tried everything from doing the "Experience Rating" to upgrading my video driver. Nothing works. I am convinced at this point that it is a network/group policy setting, but I can't personally figure out which one.

Any ideas?
