Create a group, with a forced policy that has taskmgr disabled and add the user to that group.

You can use a Group Policy.
You will need to create an OU and move the user account into the OU. You can then create a GPO to prevent use of the asks manager and link the GPO to the OU that contains the user account.

if its for a single machine you can use a registry edit
