To stop the scheduler, do this as root:
$ /etc/init.d/cron stop

To keep it from running ever again, do this as root:
$ apt-get remove cron

To change the timing, edit the appropriate cron entry.  You don't say which 
scheduled job you want to change, so I don't know if it's in cron.daily, 
cron.hourly, or somewhere else.  "man cron" will give you a good start.

If this answer is not specific enough, please ask a more specific question.  
We are all willing to help, and we welcome you to the group.  Also, if 
English is not your native language, you might try looking for a list that 
is in your native language, especially if the language barrier is keeping 
you from being specific.
