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...
