How to prevent the factory reset via Alt+F10 on reboot?

So basically I had setup GPO, content filters for a limited account on a machine that is being used by multiple users, and it turns out, by passing the content filter and even the adminstrator was as simple as doing a factor reset. All that needed to be was press Alt + F10 on reboot and the machine is now able to access everything online.

The Factory reset within windows menu had needed the administrator priveleges so it is disappointing that the same feature is available on reboot without any password.

Please let me know what can be done to prevent this.
