paste this into notepad and save as anything.reg, then double click it to make the change to the registry that removes the menu option.

"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\ActiveDesktop]
"NoChangingWallPaper"=dword:00000001"

However should this not work, and it has been known on occasions. Let me know as there are other ways to remove it.

Hi yea that didnt work, when i tried to add it to the registry it said that the specified file is not a registry script and i can only import binary registry files.

When i try to import it using regedit i get this error also....

The specified file is not a registry file. You can only import registry files.

The file is named background.reg.

Hope this helps. Maybe i done something wrong (known me thats probs the case)

Thanx

Only options i would think from here would be to do this for every user. which depending on the amount of users you may have is next to impossible.
otherwise
You would be better advised to create an OU to host each of the machines on which you wish to restrict this option and adding an entry for a file called "Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp" in to the following Policy location:
Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | File System
If you add a file, simply select the location from your own machine and Windows will enter the file as %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Internet Explorer Wallpaper.bmp

If the file does not exist on your computer, navigate to a website, right-click an image (any image) and select Set as Background. This will create the file mentioned above and allow you select it from within Group Policy Editor.
