Hi detox,

The link above is for preventing the users write into the USB device, what Im looking for is to prevent the users to install the USB so the XP will not recognize the USB port at all.

Any idea?
Thanks,
S

If you want to disable the USB port entirely, the best solution is to do it via the BIOS.  Alternative methods are discussed in this thread;
