    If you're worried about users messing around with your systems (what you're asking about is only a small part of the equation), check out Deep Freeze and the other offerings by Faronics.

    If you use group policy in your environment. You can limit access to the display properties under the User Configuration in Group Policy. It also helps if your users are not administrators of the workstations.

    It depends on what you are trying to achieve. If it is to prevent changing shortcut properties, there are some simple methods. If it is to lock down a system, that is more involved. In either case, if you leave the user with administrative rights on the system, they can circumvent any step you take. Simple method to lock the shortcuts: - Move the shortcut to the "All Users" desktop - Non-administrators cannot modify items on the All Users -- Otherwise, change access to the folder so that the user has read and execute. Note: The user can change these permissions.

    Lower their permissions (use administrative account to change user account). Hope this helps! -Schmidtw
