Go to Start > Run and type in gpedit.msc

Now that you have the Console look for User Configuration > Administratvie Templates > Control Panel > Dispaly. Double click on "Hide Background tab" in right hand pane and choos "Enabled".

There are other Dispaly configratiions there that may be useful to you as well.
