Q

How can I keep staff from altering their desktop properties?

What group or security policy can I employ to stop our staff from installing or changing their desktop properties?
Desktop properties are part of users' profiles, which users control fully. Even if you put users in the most restricted group, Users, they can still change their desktops. Depending on which properties you're trying to restrict, your best bet is to use Group Policy to lock down settings. Group Policy has a plethora of desktop settings.
