Probably the simplest way is to redirect your user's desktops using Folder
Redirection, to a read-only server share that contains on the icons you wish
the desktop to contain. You could also use something like mandatory
profiles. They would be able to make desktop changes during their current
session, but those would be discarded when they logoff. This has potential
problems of course, if they store documents on their desktop, so I would
probably prefer the folder redirection approach.
