There is a way to do it without changing the registry directly

Disable the Desktop Cleanup Wizard

Simply right click on the desktop and choose properties to get to the display properties. Choose the Desktop tab and click the Customize Desktop button. From there you can un-click the "Run Desktop Cleaner every 60 days" button.
