Even if you were to prevent others from Shutting Down or Restarting your computer, they can still simply press the power button on the front of your computer tower. Pressing the button will pop up the window to choose to Shut Down, Log Off or Restart. If they hold down the power button, it will force the computer to shut down. So it is hard to prevent them from doing that unless you were to lock up the tower in a cabinet, which would also prevent them from accessing USB Ports, CD Drive, Floppy Drive, etc. Good luck though!
