Good day Josep!
 
Good news! You no longer need to download any software security programs to restrict access to the control panel. The group policy editor made an  easy way to change a number of registry entries. 
 
There are the steps to restrict the Control Panel on your computer.
 
Open Registry Editor by going into the START Menu and click on RUN
Type the command REGEDIT
Simply navigate to these folders respectively:
 
HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Software
MicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPolicies
Explorer
 
Then right-click on the right pane. You now need to create a new DWORD Value. Make sure to name the value to NoControlPanel.
Right-click on it and click MODIFY.
Simply change the value for 'NoControlPanel' to 1 and close out Registry Editor. Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.
 
 
You will not notice that there is no Control Panel in the Start Menu list.
 
 
If someone will attempt to access it, this will be the error message that will pop-up.
 
 
If you would like to enable it again, follow the steps in Registry editor and change the value for NoControlPanel to '0' and reboot the computer.
 
Good luck!
