Please explain what you mean - you can't log on locally using a domain logon - they can log onto the domain FROM your computer - is that what you mean ?

You have to be a local admin for this to work

Control Panel
Administrative Tools
Local Security Policy
User Rights Assignments on the left (under Local Policies)
Double Click Log on locally (on the right)
Remove Domain Admins (and anyone else, just make sure you don't remove yourself)

You can modify the local computer policy (run c:\windows\system32\secpol.msc /s) and modify the user rights assignments. Specifically the "Deny logon locally" setting. Many system administrators leave this at the default setting when creating security policies so the locally policy will stay in effect. Make sure you are very careful as to what accounts are added here as you may lock yourself out.

** I need to stress that If this machine is at your workplace, many corporate environments prohibit modifying security policies on local machines. This would be a violatation of IT policies and may result in disciplinary action and/or termination of employment.
