Re-Enabling Admin disabled USB ports on Windows 7 HP notebook

HP 2000 Notebook PC. Windows 7 (64 bit).

My office laptop had typical restrictions of USB ports being blocked, etc.
Now I bought the laptop from my company for my personal use but the USB port restrictions are still in place.

How do I remove these restrictions?
