Maybe password protect the admin account, then create a generic, passwordless account for everyone else and disable all privilages. Then they won't be able to access the desktop settings and more stuff if you find so fit.

However, I'm not sure if your version of windows (I'm assuming windows) has the capabilities of blocking the things you want blocked.

Ye, it's quite easy to block this, just add DWORD NoChangingWallPaper with the value of 1 to key HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesActiveDesktop, or if you want to do it for the whole computer use the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesActiveDesktop

Unless you're confident in using the registry though, don't screw up.

It's surprisingly hard to do but make one false move and your Windows machine will be about as useful as a paper hammer...

Providing you use common sense though, follow instructions and don't edit the registry when heavily sleep-deprived, drunk or drugged you'll be fine.
