Prevent ANY program from creating new tasks in Task Scheduler

Sorry guys for mixup with my previous thread since the title was wrong.

What I need help for is how to temporary freeze or block Task Scheduler so that no programs will be able to create new tasks unless I allow it.
Is there any software that can do it?

Try GPedit (group policies).

Creating or modifying any task at the task scheduler requires administrator permission, so the solution is pretty simple: When UAC prompts for your admin password, just say NO. Only programs that you elevate will be able to tamper with task scheduler.

The main purpose of blocking task manager was to prevent Yandex browser tampering with my system by force updating and by recreating files and tasks I previously deleted.
I call it hacking so I uninstalled that stupid software.
