working in the Network Connections window its all too easy to right click and disable the network connection.

When this is done through a remote session its particularly annoying as physical location can mean its a problem to get it enabled again.

Is there a setting that can remove the "disable" option from the right click options on the network adaptor or a group policy that can prevent users from disabling the NIC in windows?

You can achieve this by implementing a Group Policy Object.
