How can I disable the apear windows when I eject a usb device on my W2k station.
I got public computers and the users askeds always to securly remove their usb devices, but It does'nt work with active directory and only users rights.

I always have solution for Xp:
Registry Settings
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
Value Name: NoTrayItemsDisplay
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = default, 1 = enable restriction)

BUT IT DOESN'T WORK FOR w2K.

Regards.

rpinault your comment>>users  asks always to >>securly remove<< their usb devices, the secure way is to db click the mass storage devive and "stop." it.

A Thumb Drive is designed as the mass storage for the data read and write via PC USB2.0 host.
The basic functions are required as below:
1. Plug & Play
2. Read and Write
3. Write-Protect Switch
4. Unplug
2.2 Plug and Play
When you plug the device into the USB port of your computer, you will see a “Removable Disk” icon in
the file manager window.

Warning:
In Windows ME and Windows 2000 operating systems, you " must use "
the hardware safe removal procedure, otherwise data loss caused by the “write cache” issue may happen.
