Open terminal window and login as root ( superuser)

type :

chkconfig  --level  2345 crond  off

to prevent cron daemon from staring in runlevels 2,3,4 and 5.

If you're already running system and crond is launched but you want to stop it
 type this:

/sbin/service crond stop

If you don't need cron at all you can uninstall it or delete is from the list of services ( daemons) in sysvinit scripts:

chkconfig --del crond

good luck
