Unlike in Windows NT Server, Windows NT Workstation's log-in screen has a "Shutdown" button which you can use to shutdown the system without ever logging in. Here's how to disable Windows NT Workstation's "Shutdown" button on the initial log-in screen:
Run "Registry Editor" (run "RegEdit.exe" or "RegEdt32.exe")
Select the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\
SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\
Current Version\Winlogon

Add a value named "ShutdownWithoutLogon" of type "REG_SZ" and set it to "0".
Restart Windows

Group Policy is not the answer. You need to give your users a limited account. With such an account they will not be able to do any of these things with a system process. If users have an admin account all of your attempts to limit their activities are doomed to fail. Even if you could prevent doing this with Task Manager there are other ways you cannot control.
