Prevent remove/delete icon on desktop in Windows 7 Kiosk machine

Dear,

We could like to build up the Kiosk in Windows 7 Machine. Before, in Windows XP, we can make the desktop in user's profile as read only and prevent them remove/delete desktop icon. How can I do it in Windows 7 ? Any GPO can be apply ?
Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Brian
