Prevent users from changing desktops?

How do I prevent domain users using WinXP from making any kind of changes to the desktop such as moving icons, deleting icons, adding shortcuts, etc. I would appreciate a step-by-step guide on how to use Group Policies under a windows server 2003 to do that.

  1. You could just go into the users profile (under c:\documents and settings\*profile name*) and rename the ntuser.dat to ntuser.man. They will still be able to change everything mentioned above, but when they log back in, it will be set back to the way it was set before that file was renamed.
