Restricting adding and deleting of predefined toolbars

Hello All,

I was wondering if there is a way to restrict users from right clicking the GUI and adding unnecessary toolbars? also, if there is a way to make the toolbars "stick", meaning if the user accidentally closes out /de-activates a pre-defined toolbar, the next time Arcmap opens, it's still loads all the pre-defined toolbars? Am I making any sense here?

here are some things I have done so far;

1. Use the VBA editor to lock the "custom mode" under Customize Menu, hoping this would solve this

but I'm still able to add toolbars and de-activate pre-defined toolbars.

Also, whenever I change user profiles on my PC, I lose password lock on the "Custom Mode" and have to edit the normal.mxt thru VBA editor again. But that's no biggie, if there is a solution to make it stick all thru out the user profiles, much better

hoping to see answers ;)
