It's hard coded. You just can't delete it. Perhaps (perhaps perhaps) there is a registry setting for that. But I don't think so. Sorry...

icemilo,
Perhaps this will be a suitable workaround for you:
Although you may not be able to prevent the "save as wallpaper" option from executing in IE, you can set a restriction in policy editor to hide the "Background" page from being displayed in Display properties.  This will prevent users from changing the wallpaper.
For more information, check the help file on poledit located on your Windows CD, in the \admin\apptools folder.
Regards,
Ralph
