In a win2k3 domain I want to disable USB using group policy, by default, Group Policy does not offer a facility to easily disable drives containing removable media, such as USB ports...

The solution is available at:
but when I did as explained, the imported template was not available in the group policy.

Please help me why it is not appearing, the screen shots of what I did are attached and the .adm file also.
( I uploaded usb.adm file as usb.adm.txt beacuse the .adm extension is not allowed, but while importing in GP it was usb.adm only)
