I would like to be able to disable all users from being able to change their screen saver. (I.e. grey out the drop down option and therefore force them to stay on the screen saver I have chosen).

Start Regedit
Find HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System (If the system key doesn't exist, create
it from Edit->New-Key)
add a DWORD (Edit->New-DWORD Value) NoDispScrSavPage and
set it 1.
This will remove the screen saver tab from the
Display properties panel.
