I have some users that will not comply with my requests for them to log off their terminal session the correct way.  I am looking for a way to remove the close x from the top bar in a RDP session.  I have scoured the internet and I cannot find anything  instructing me how to do this in group policy. This is what I would like to do.
-Remove close X from the top bar in RDP, or remove the bar all together.....

I have tried the tutorial at http://terminal.servebeer.com/php/x_box_disable.php
and this didn't work, I read something else that said something about Windows File Protection?

I am really looking to get this done! and I am having the hardest time with this.
Thanks for all your help in advance

Not a total solution but could help:
You can set session limits in numerous places. I would suggest setting idle or disconnected sessions to logoff after a specific period of time. The locations you can chose to set this are:
1)      Domain group policy Computer configuration | Administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal Services | Sessions |....
2)      Domain group policy User configuration | Administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal Services | Sessions |....
3)      Local computer policy Computer configuration | Administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal Services | Sessions |....
4)      Local computer policy User configuration | Administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal Services | Sessions |....
5)      Users profile in Active Directory. See: Active Directory Users and Computers | User profile | Sessions
6)      If a terminal server, see also: on the terminal server, Terminal Services Configuration console | Connections | right click on RDP-Tcp in the right hand window and choose properties | Sessions |&.
