1- copy attached txt to notepad, save it as .adm
2- Creat an OU, move your users to this OU
3- right click, properties, group policy
4- new, edit
5- user configuration, administrative template,  right click, add brows to this adm file you have created.

If you need to do this for some computers then try

IntelliAdmin Remote USB disabler.


Or a script that worked great for me...
http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Q_22756399.html

As this would be useful when you need to do this only for some computers and even dont want to change the computers from there OU's

Hope this helps...
