I use this key
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system]
"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000001

Works on XP macine wide but on Vista only on Admin account even if I have loged on user and give admin password when changing it.

            Hi Matti
             Did you try
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
             
            Or
Click Start
Click Run
Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
In the Group Policy settings window
Select User Configuration
Select Administrative Templates
Select System
Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
Select Remove Task Manager
Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager. So set it to enable.
Restart the computer

Actual I'm making a VB program to disable the Taskmanager, I was able to change  permissions and it worked similar as your solution.
I have another Vista question related to this.
