How to remove accessibility options in Windows Server 2003 running Terminal Services?

Dear Sir,

I have three Windows 2003 TS 64 Bit Entreprise Edition, running Windows application. These servers are joined to a domain.
My users keep activating the sticky and filter key accessibility options within their Windows sessions. I want to know how to completely remove these options from the servers. I have already removed the "accessibility options wizard" from both servers through Control Panel\Windows components. I
haven't been able to find any thing on how to remove the individual options from Windows.
I can turn them off and on can't seem to find a way to remove them. Does anyone have any ideas please???

Any Help Please?

Thank you in advance,
LVL 1

Create a group policy (if you do not have one already) and disable from there.

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Disable changing accessibility settings

The Five Tenets of the Most Secure Backup

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

create a custom ADM file and drop it into c:\windows\inf as StickyKeys.adm

CLASS USER
  CATEGORY "Custom Template"
    CATEGORY "Status of Stickies"
      POLICY "Turned on"
        KEYNAME "Control Panel\Accessibility\StickyKeys"
        VALUENAME "Flags"
        VALUEON "506"
      END POLICY
    END CATEGORY; "Status of Stickies"
  END CATEGORY; "Custom Template"

Open GPO, and under users > admin templates > add new and browse to c:\windows\inf\StickyKeys.adm you will then see a new container called custom and status of stickies.. select this, it won't show anything YET.
Right click in the white box right hand side, Select View Filtered. Take the check out of "Only show policy settings that can be fully managed",  then go back to the same place and you have the options.

then you will be able to turn off and on....

So Fox,
One more question when I will create this file and attach it to a GPO.
So the small windows Stickey Key will disappear if the users press the Shift Key 5 times?

Thank you in advance,
