    Win 10 Pro (22H2) (2nd PC is 22H2)

    How can you do that?
    Can't think of a complete solution- there are more ways to block access than to stop changes being made or processes being terminated.

    Hopefully someone who's tried to do this will add more.

    Some ideas by way of a starter:

    I suggest you set UAC to its highest level then experiment to see if there are specific issues remaining that you can investigate individually.
