How to prevent users from changing my wallpaper?
I would like to specify a set of wallpapers to rotate,(a feature windows 7 has by default) and then make it impossible for any user, administrator or otherwise, to change that set. I know there has to be a way to do that, because there are multiple tutorials on how to lock just one wallpaper, I just want to take it to the next step, any help would be appreciated.
I have no reservations about editing the registry and am running Windows 7 home premium, please take this into consideration with your suggestions

Normally, they would have to be logged in to your user account to change your wallpaper, unless they are an administrator and changed it through group policy.
If you are the only administrator on the computer that is password protected, and everyone had their own separate "Standard" user account, then they will not be able to change it.
Hope this helps,
