Disabling display properties in W2K

Is there a way to keep someone with "User" rights from changing the background and screen saver in W2K? I thought if there was a way to hide/disable display properties for "User" rights would work.

    Accepted Solution

    Go to Start > Run and type in gpedit.msc

    Now that you have the Console look for User Configuration > Administratvie Templates > Control Panel > Display. Double click on "Hide Background tab" in right hand pane and choose "Enabled". There are other configs as well.
