> Administrative Tools
> Local Security Policy
> User Rights Assignments
> Change System Time
Remove Power Users and all "extra" Admin. and or other users. So only administrators can change the time but not any other kind of users.
If you wish to modify this further with Windows XP Professional you can use the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc). The setting is located under Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Local Policies, User Rights Assignment, "Change the system time".
Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer “Accept as Solution” if it solves your problem.

In fact, you can set a password to lock the time setting, so only one who know the password can change the system time, you can read more details abouth how to set a password to lock the time setting with Windows from: How to lock the time setting on Windows?
