You could set the USB controller drivers to be disabled. How does that sound as a simple solution? Peter OSR @OSRDrivers

If the owner of the computer wants to use USB, it's not up to you to block him. If you really want to prevent USB use totally, the only way is to pack the USB sockets with silicone sealant. ???

So if by "usb" you really mean "removable media" then https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772540(v=ws.10).aspx Mark Roddy On Thu, Oct 5, 2017 at 1:51 AM, xxxxx@probo.com <xxxxx@lists.osr.com> wrote: > On Oct 4, 2017, at 10:10 PM, xxxxx@gmail.com <xxxxx@lists.osr.com> > wrote: > > > > but what if anyone else re enable it?? i want to do it with my own driver > > What are you trying to prevent?

Actually, there are companies that have plugs for USB sockets that detect if they are removed. They are not cheap and I have not looked for a while, but they were sold for security situations. You can in theory remove the plug to put in a device, but alarms start going off, and the places I have seen them grim people carrying firearms appear immediately.
