I have most of my options to lock down a machine,  but my boss wants the user desktop to be read-only. Anyone know the best way to do this

I would set up a mandatory profile for the user.

Or you can redirect the desktop (using folder redirection) to a fake location

The easiest way to do it is to set a GPO Folder Preference that Updates the %Userprofile%\Desktop folder so it's read only.

@acbrown2010, that is a great suggestion, I'll try that.
