I have to add new role, for users than can create accounts for others.

I create new role and add create profile content permission.

But when I am anonymous link 'clear new account' still appear and I can create account. I want only certain role to create account, not everyone.

Could somebody give me any advice?

To disable account creation by anonymous:
At admin/user/settings check "Only site administrators can create new user accounts"

Allow the account-creator role to administer users:
At admin/user/permissions -> user module -> administer users

Use a module such a Protect Critical Users if the account-creator role should not be able to touch the superuser (user1).

In Drupal 7, under Admin, Configuration, Account settings (/admin/config/people/accounts), there is an option called Who can register accounts?, there you have to select Administrators only.
