That's a good question.


To prevent only say, powershell and command prompt, there are things built in, depending on OS, that you can do, like whitelists of HID devices. For windows users, you can disable powershell and the cmd prompt and exclude use of bat and vbs scripts from running as stand alone scripts as well(see my screenshot https://imgur.com/a/Xeld2), and damn near any other app (settings just below it, can block an APP by name or path to executable) or device, but won't prevent copying stand alone/staged executables that house all the code needed to do something malicious, nor prevent typing from the HID without a USB/HID black/whitelist.

In windows, a group policy could be applied, or registry changes(which is a PITA) or write a bat script to enable/disable most things in combo with a group policy to prevent the cmd prompt and powershell from being run at all (or use UAC to prevent without a password).

See here for more info on device blacklists/whitelists: 


Some of those features might not be available for all versions of windows, or in some cases need be applied by a domain controller against client machines.
