    Restrict changing the default themes

    I bought a new PC with Windows 7 for my home use. My kids always keep on changing the theme. Actually they play by doing so and i guess it can harm or cause some problem to the pc.

    Is there any way i can prevent changing Themes in Windows 7 ? Please help..

    3. Double click Prevent changing theme option in the right pane.

    4. Now click the dot Enabled.

    5. Click Apply and then OK button.

    6. Close Local Group Policy editor
