I have seen this site before but it gives advice on non default options.  Also if done by extensions do you know the one for the shortcut option.

Navigate to HKey_Classes_Root\.lin\ShellNew
renams this to Shell old. This will disable the option.
The user may receive the new shortcut icon but the only thing they can do is delete it. They cannot edit the properties to have it point to any specific location.

You can also disable the New menu:

Disable the right click all together
