Changing Windows 7 screensaver

I am setting up some rules for the company. They asked me to allow users to be able to change there screensave but not be able to set it to (None).

How can I do this? Either a GPO or registry hack is good.
Thanks in advance
This is on W7E x64

i can't see how this is possible.  I've found other threads where people wanted that option but can't do it.

You can force a specific screensaver (as in the link above) but doesn't allow the user to change it.  If it's disabled or not configured then the screensaver settings are enabled but none is still an option.  I don't see how "none" can be removed from the selection.

None is a valid option.. FWIW screen savers are an anachronism... all they are is eye candy. Using the power options to turn off the monitor saves the company money .. just lock the computer after a period of inactivity and require a password to unlock.
