Blocking abilities in XP guest account.
 
Is it possible to block someone on a quest account from changing the wallpaper and screensaver and other desktop settings without going through the whole process of setting up a domain and setting up user profiles and such?

To disable the ability go access the desktop, change these values in the registry:

Code:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoPropertiesMyComputer"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer]
"NoViewContextMenu"=dword: 00000001


...and theres this too...
