Create a password for your account and lock the desktop when you're not using it. If he doesn't have access to Windows he can't change anything.

If he needs access to the system, create a limited account for him. This type of account won't be able to create new accounts.

If you create a limited account for him he will not be able to do system wide changes to the system, including opening the Registry Editor, installing and uninstalling programs, installing hardware and other system wide changes. As mentioned by JMPC create a password for your account lock the Desktop by pressing the Windows key (Windows logo key) and the L button. This will lock the terminal (Computer) so no one but you will have access to it until the correct password is entered. Hint create a strong password using random letters and numbers. Do not use birthday dates, names, and anything he could guess. store the password in a safe place where he can't find it.

To setup a limited account go to Control Panel>User Accounts>Manage Another Account>Create a user Account Type in the name you want to use make sure you select "Standard Account" Click create or OK.

It takes 5-10 seconds to type a password and is the only way to keep people off of your computer.
