Is it possible to configurate the TeamViewer so the user can't performs the shutdown, reboot, lock user, log off etc. via remote control?

I really doubt it. I don't think the computer can tell the difference between input from a user sitting at the computer, and from someone connecting through Teamviewer. You'd probably need to disable it completely on the computer, and require a password to re-enable those controls.

Indeed, TeamViewer relays input and display in the simplest way, and if a program calls ExitWindowsEx(), Windows has absolutely no way of knowing whether it was initiated over TeamViewer or not. –  grawity Mar 7 '12 at 20:37
Yeah, that's what I thought. –  SaintWacko Mar 8 '12 at 16:48
