Default WMP - Disable CD Ripping Feature

I am looking for a way to disable the CD Ripping feature in WMP. I have found the correct reg keys yet they are in HKCU and do not see a way to disable them without our users being able to enable them on there own.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks
Gavin

So our users will not be ripping the cd's to there network drives that are backed up every night. It is an easier solution than training 750 people to rip them to there desktop.

just uninstall WMP, and install a barebones CD-playing program.

I was looking for more of a vb script that we could deploy to the machines, or a GP that might do the trick. It would take quite a while for me to UI WMP on 600 workstations.

Has anyone found a solution to this yet? ive been trying to do this for a month or so now myself. and when you have 1,000 plus users its not so easy to just uninstall one program and install another and push it to the rest of the systems, a regedit would be so much easier.
