Go to Start Run gpedit.msc and you should be able to limit control panel access for specific user.

Yes it does. I use a script to enable / disable access when I need to service the machine.

@ rosieman  - I do not turn off control panel on client machines. There is no value to doing this. Set the user up as standard and ensure UAC is enabled. Then anything they might try to do in control panel will not work.

I never see clients mucking about in control panel anyway.
