"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can do disable desktop sharing using a policy, create a policy and configure meeting poicy as per user basis, then when configuring the user select the ploicy that disables desktop sharing

for file sharing I cannot remember if the meeting policy has file sharing option or not, will check it and come back to you, you can check it as well and let me know

if the policy has file transfer option then create a new policy that has the required settings.
from the global settings select use per user policy
go to the required user and right click then configure OCS options.
then select the required policy

no you don't use GPO to deploy it, it is a policy that is assgined to users in active directory users and computers or using OCS administrative tools
