Prevent Task Run or End

Prevents users from starting and stopping tasks manually.This setting removes the Run and End Task items from the context menu that appears when you right-click a task. As a result users cannot start tasks manually or force tasks to end before they are finished.Note: This setting appears in the Computer Configuration and User Configuration folders. If both settings are configured the setting in Computer Configuration takes precedence over the setting in User Configuration.
