how to avoid "Found New Hardware " Wizard when attaching UDB thumb drives

On most of the workstations when we attached USB thumb drives it runs “found new hardware wizard”
And system only sees usb drives when we finished this process. But some machines we don’t need to this .How can we avoid this so user won’t have to do this . In fact some users not able to complete this wizard because they don’t have admin privileges.
I gooled but  and didn’t find any sensible solution.Please let me know if  you experienced with this before or  have some solutions

I thought this was fixed with XP sp3.
Are the machines with an issue sp3?

WellI hav SP3 installed as far as the link I don't have "Windows WindowsNT" in to the registery entry where it mentioned and other entries are there
For users that don't need this, disable Shell Hardware Detection, and the Plug and Play services..

Can bot be done via GPO if desired....

regsvr32 Softpub.dll
regsvr32 Wintrust.dll
regsvr32 Initpki.dll
regsvr32 Dssenh.dll
regsvr32 Rsaenh.dll
regsvr32 Gpkcsp.dll
regsvr32 Sccbase.dll
