Wow, that is a dangerous task you're asking. You do have the right to block people from tampering with your Access database and code, but no user in his/her right mind is going to allow you to give him/her a program that will do what you ask. I know I wouldn't... it's MY computer.

SerranoG thanks for reply. I know i dont have any right to block anyone's computer. I am sorry that i didnt explain you why i need the program. Actually its for net cafe. I want to block many things as possible, just the user will be allowed to use internet. In net cafe all computers are mine. Please help me. I want the VB code. Thankyou
I haven't given any VB code for this because there is no built-in method of changing general registry settings from VB, you have to use either a WinAPI call or the WSH objects - so its actually easier to do it from a simple .vbs script file.
Under XP, for security reasons a lot of features cannot be changed programmatically.
The only way to do it is to create a user and set the right permissions (like no RUN menu, no task manager, no shut down allowed etc)
