Hey, have you tried the DEVCON.exe tool from microsoft, its a free tool which might be what your looking for.

http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=311272

once downloaded, copy to a folder, then go to that folder from teh coomand prompt and try the following command lines

devcon find usb\*
devcon remove @usb\*

The first will find all the usb devices and the second will remove all, replace the * in the second with the hardware ID.

Hope I could help

Hello,

I have d/loaded the devcon tool.  I'm trying to get a .bat file created for interactively logged on users to kill the usb.  Can anyone help me with the "correct" syntax to be used?  Also, I'm still trying to find confirmation if the devon tool has to be installed on each machine that I want to disable the usb on or if it can be installed on a central server and the script run from there?  

Thanks for your time
