You can lock out the menu item, see here: http://www.slipstick.com/how-to-outlook/group-policy-disable-commands/
However, I'm not sure what will happen with the rules that are already been set up, if they'll continue running or if they're also disable (test it on yourself after you setup one forward rule).

Then, while you didn't mention Exchange (and hence OWA), it should be disable there too if that's the case.
Exchange powershell command is: Set-RemoteDomain Default –AutoForwardEnabled $False

If you have the default remote domain with an address space of “*” you can verify by using the command “Get-RemoteDomail”. Set-RemoteDomai -Identity Default -AutoForwordEnabled:$False
