Need to add Website Link to all desktops in a Domain.

Hi,
   I have a domain with about 100 desktops and laptop spead over 4 sites which correspond to differnt cities. I need a way to add a link to a specific web page to everyone's desktop. I'm guessnig the best way is through a logon script (which we use to add network shares) or through Group Policy. It would be preferable if they can't delete it, but not mandatory. No one is allowed local admin rights except Domain admins. thanks

I found this on the internet, I am not a scripting person, but this can be added to the logon script  

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
         strDesktop = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
         set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktop & "\Network Share.lnk")
         oShellLink.TargetPath = "\\server\share"
         oShellLink.WindowStyle = 1
         oShellLink.IconLocation = "explorer.exe, 0"
         oShellLink.Description = "Network Share"
         oShellLink.WorkingDirectory = "\\share\server"
         oShellLink.Save

Just use group policy to add a favorite

User config, Internet explorer maintenance, urls favorits and links, right click add favorite

yeah I tried that. It didn't seem to work. I've read other people say you have to enable Active Desktop on all the workstations, which sounds like a bad idea.
