Is there a way to lock your screen resolution in Windows?

Sometimes programs automatically change your monitor's resolution when you run them. Is there a blanket way to possibly lock your resolution to prevent that from happening?

If I've ever seen anything weird happening, it was on my 2nd monitor, and i'd notice the wallpaper would change according to what size the main monitor was forced into...

After I quit the program my desktop goes back to the default resolution anyway... If you're having problems with your desktop being left in the program's resolution when you end it, well I have no idea what to tell you.

You could try disabling all the monitor modes that you don't want, but that could cause problems...I wouldn't do it. I also wouldn't know how to tell you to go about doing it... I just know that somewhere it's possible to tell my video card that only certain resolutions are available.

I'll try looking around the Nvidia control panel to see if I can disable some resolution options.

There is some options under the display listing in N control panel. "adjust desktop size and position". I leave mine at aspect ratio and I've never had a problem with applications changing my desktop resolution.
