Disable Web Desktop?

I need to find a way to disable this function:

1. Rightclick Desktop
2. Properties
3. Desktop Tab
4. Customize Desktop
5. Web Tab

We have used the gpedit.msc to enforce a standard background for all PC's, Users are going to this location linking to a image and maximizing it to create a "Makeshift" background that technically is just a layer over the actual background which is still there.

Anyway I can disable this function?

  1. Not sure if this will work, but in policy editor, go to User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Active Desktop and change "disable active desktop" to enabled.
  2. After looking at more polices, I see that "disable active desktop" should be disabled (verify this) and User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Desktop\Active Desktop "prohibit changes" should be enabled. This will remove the "web" tab.
  3. Perfect thank you!
