how to block executable from specified drives

I can give a path rule in group policy like h:\*.exe to block exe files .But exe files in sub folders in the drive are still able to run. I want to block exe files in entire Removable media drives.Is there a way to do this??

I think upalakshitha wishes to block only the executable files from the removable media and not the drive itself.

First Thanks Guys for replying to my Question
In this way http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324
as i know it disables the entire Drives.I use that way Who wants to Prevent usung usb drives.
Finaly only way as i also think like sarangk_14:  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Security/Operating_Systems_Security/Windows/Q_20787334.html

But practically we install lots of software to a pc no.... .so we have to allow one by one if we use that method.it is better if we can find a solution to block only .exe, .bat , .vbs files from entire specified removable or local drives.this can help reduce to spred virus no........
I think u also will agree with me Because antivirus can not detect all the viruses

Yes, but the question is: are you looking for a commercial/ paid software to achieve this?
