Restrict users from setting background pictures with Context Menu "Set as background"

Hi All,

I have been asked to set in place a stndard desktop picture and remove the feature allowing users to set a background picture  which i have been able to do, However i cannot seem to find a policy option to disable either the right click feature in IE and other programs to stop the option "Set as background" appearing in the context menu.

I wish to stop the "Set as background" option appearing in the context menu's.

Thanks

how have you set your background, you need to use the active desktop policy and disable making changes

I have used the group policy to remove the background tab from the display properties and also made it so users could not modify settings even if the tab displayed, everything would be "Greyed out"

I have used a script file to copy over the required image and then used reg add to update the registry.

i use the Active Desktop policy under desktop to enable Active Desktop, set my image and then disable any changes,

i also hide the dekstop tab for good measure!

I will look into this option, However i still think users can right click on an image in internet explorer and choose "Set as Background" by passing all of this.
