SET USB permission

I need to enable my usb only to keyboard and mouse, and block it to others devices. How can I do that on XP and Windows 7 ?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to modify the Start value in following registry key to 4(Original is 3):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor

This will block the USB storage devices but the usb mouse, keyboard etc will remain enabled.
