Go to Active Directory Users and Computers. Select the OU where you want to apply the policy, or alernatively select the domain if you want the policy to apply to everyone in the domain. Select NEW and create a new policy - Give it a meaningful name  - like 'desktop'.
Click EDIT. Go to User Settings. Most of the settings you require are either under 'Taskbar and Start Menu' or 'Desktop'

Incidently one of the setting is 'Don't save on exit' which works much the same as a mandatory profile.
