Admin users have the ability to modify the Page Layout and can easily remove a specific Visualforce Page from it. Is there any way to prevent this from happening? If not, what steps should I take to prevent Admin users from removing the Visualforce Page?

    Honestly: does it not make more sense to limit your admin users to strictly those that know what they are doing ? – Samuel De Rycke Apr 25 '16 at 14:14

There is no mechanism to make a Visualforce Page "required" on a Page Layout. You are going to have to rethink your requirements and approach this from an admin training perspective. If you train your admins not to remove this page from the layout, you should be able to trust them to follow your instruction as long as they are capable professionals.

    +1 I totally agree with @adrian on this. Why would you want to refrain an admin from doing administrative tasks ? – Sf_Noob Apr 25 '16 at 15:15

    If you cannot trust your admin, you cannot trust anyone. – Adrian Larson Apr 25 '16 at 15:17
