if you are on a domain
you'll have to beg your admin to give you all the correct settings
you can disable right click on the taskbar using security policy

if you're just a standalone user and local admin you might find that in control panel -> administration tools -> local security policy, you can have a look at the settings that are set there and change the behaviour of a whole plethora of windows related things, including the behaviour of the taskbar and start menu
