disabling Task Manager for non Administrator user accounts??

I would like to disable Task Manager for nonAdministrator windows accounts. Using gpedit.msc, I see that I can disable it for all accounts, but I don't see any options for selective disabling. Any suggestions?

If you have the OS on NTFS, simply revoke the Read permission on the .EXE that is task manager. With file permissions you can tailor this as specifically as you wish.
