Prevent creation of new task in Task Scheduler (For Current User).

This setting prevents you from creating new task in Task Scheduler.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000
This setting prevents you from creating new task in Task Scheduler. It removes the Add Scheduled Task item – the wizard interface to add new task. In addition, the system does not respond when you try adding a task from the File menu or simply perform a drag-and-drop operation of programs or scripts in the Task Scheduler folder.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. If any of the subkeys “\Windows\Task Scheduler5.0” does not exist, create it as explained below. Then, create a DWORD value “Task Creation” in the right panel.

Now, right-click and modify the value to "1" to enable restriction. However, if you want to get back to the original state and disable restriction, change the value to "0" or delete the added value.

The changes take effect after a restart or logoff.
