1. cmd is automatically disabled by the admin password
2. for data drives you could use encryption.

Hello Gr007, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could set the permissions for these items to either "Allow" or "Deny" specific users different types of access or not. Just be sure to not apply this to "Everyone", or the Administrators group will be affected as well.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Could you clarify exactly at what point the computer is restarting and what you or they were doing? I not sure if I understand what you mean by "when im doin the deny process to other users".

Double check to make sure that you didn't deny the other users access to the C: drive that Windows 7 is installed on.
