Here is an article on using group policy to stop USBs: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324

Here is an article on how to do it with registry settings and a file rename: http://www.intelliadmin.com/blog/2007/01/disable-usb-flash-drives.html
Registry settings can be done through GP or via script (or manually). File rename can be done through script (and applied through GP)

If you need a script, let me know. I won't be able to get to it today, but can work on it next week. Usually GP is the way to go though (easy to manage).

Have a great day.
