Is there a way to disallow changing system time/date?

A bunch of guys in the office change the date/time and conveniently claim they finished their work on time. Is there a way to disallow changing of time?

Thanks guys

I really just said that because you sounded like you wanted to get back at them.

Then you have a big problem, very big. No user should ever EVER have administrator power. An administrator user can revert any change you make in Local Security Policy and regain the ability to change the time.

You already lost your ability to control these computers. Either take away administrator power and find a way to make your old broken POS applications work, or give up now.
