1) If your machine is in domain then Domain admin will have access, if you wish no access for domain admin then need to remove machine from domain
2) change administrator account password and do not share that to anybody.
3) Remove File and Print sharing option if its enable. so no one can access your drive from network.

Go to Account tab of Active Directory Users and Computers, select "Log On To" button and specify your computer to your User account. Use DENY LOG ON LOCALLY and ALLOW LOG ON LOCALLY group policy to restrict users.

Your IT department will not be happy about your decision to deny them access to your machine. It could even lead to sanctions if you decided to lock them out. Did you talk about your fears? Normally, admins will sign a paper that restricts misuse and limits their snooping to work matters.

The hints given are correct, but you should not carry them out.

Can you clarify if it is "your" PC or it belongs to your employer?

If it is "your" PC, it probably should not be connected to the company's network, and almost certainly it should not be allowed to join the domain. But if it's a company PC, well.. then it is not "your" PC.
