Nope. There's no way to totally guarentee that a batch won't be interrupted.

There are several tricks you can use like changing the STDIN device to NUL and such, but since these commands have to occur withing the batch the command redirecting STDIN itself can receive a <Ctrl Break> before it executes. So stopping the batch is just a matter of timing.

Someone will surely mention BREAK OFF, this actually doesn't eliminate the <Ctrl C> checking, it just reduces it's frequency so it's a little harder (not much) to stop.

You can also stop a program by causing a hardware fault (like opening the disk drive door while writing to floppy). This will universally trigger a "Critical Stop-Abort/Retry/Ignore" type of error that the user can break out of.
