Hello Vitos, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The only way would be to make their account to be a standard user type instead.

User Account Type - Change

Noway for doing this? What about editing Administrator rules or making a new type of account?

Wouldn't do any good. As long as that account is a member of the "Administrators" group, it will be able to do anything. Including undoing any setting you make to prevent it from doing something.

The only way is for that account to be a member of only the "Standard User" group.
