I'm looking for a way to block local users from accessing any of the system files?

I'm currently using windows 8 and I'm sharing a computer. However, one of the users manages to always manages to grant administrator to all the users using cmd somehow.

(There is one admin with 8 users with standard account)

I would like to increase the security in my computer. It seems that I cannot change the attributes of the files to deny in the system files. So how do I do it?

So i'm trying to find a way to

disable the usage of external devices like usb/CD, etc

remove access to system files, (cmd,cmdkey,etc)

disable download from Internet

Is it possible? or are there any better ways? it would be really helpful to me.
