Hi sandeep1971,

you cant lock down USB via GPO

you can lock down USB on a desktop machine but its not a subjective block, it blocks or allows

Cheers!

im not a scripter but if you even attempted this, you would have have to specify every individual USB component available - millions...

Not with the native Windows tools; you can use a third-party tool like DeviceLock (http://www.devicelock.com/) to do that, though.
