Hi,

If you start QGIS with the --configpath option, you avoid hacking the registry, 
as all such settings are written into the folder the “--configpath” option 
points to (more precisely, into the QGIS.ini file)
That folder can be in the users Home directory and e.g. copied from a network 
drive...

See:
http://gis.stackexchange.com/questions/96094/how-to-start-qgis-with-configpath-option-on-windows

Cheers
Stefan

Well there seems to be plenty of options; I like the idea of disabling some of 
the interface options. I highly doubt too many of my coworkers know how to 
access the registry and those that do I am not worried about making edits.
Thanks all.
Cheers

If you're using the OSGeo4W installer, you could uninstall the filegdb
api so that QGIS has to use the OpenFileGDB driver (which is read
only) to view file geodatabases. The QGIS stand-alone installer just
has the OpenFileGDB driver, so nothing extra is required there.
