Blocking of USB ports since Windows XP and higher

I need to block USB ports on my PC. I tried DeviceLock (www.devicelock.com) but my PC has become working too slow, because the program contains too many other features that I don't need. Moreover my PC are modest and having 1-core processors that is not enough for such a class of the programs. SECUDRIVE Device Control (www.secudrives.com) a bit lightweight from the point of view the consuming of system resources, but it has a big lack-it needs to be annually recharged on each of my PC's.  Could you please to explain me how to make an administrative templates to include that feature of blocking the ports or if it doesn't possible, may be you have another solution for me? Maybe changing of some records in registry branches could solve my issue? Or may be some another lightweight application exists for my needs?

Never tried it but you could disable them in Device manager. Ive as well heard of disabling them in BIOS.
