    Hi All,

    I need to know how to BLOCK the USB Ports in a Computer System either
    thru the Registry or either with any third Party Software. By all means, it
    should allow for the Printer, keyboard & mouse to continue working on these
    ports but block the rest of the Open USB Ports.

    If done with the Registry, will anyone be able to unblock it back with the
    registry key's. If so, how can it be done that no one can unblock without
    getting the permission required.

    Appreciate your assistance in this matter.

    Thanks Again to all you GURU's out there for helping me time and again.

    Best REgards

    Well finally, I was able to get a Program and did the Work
    of Blocking the USB Ports. It's USB Block ??

    THis is just doing what is needed ??? blocking the USB Ports
    while allowing the other activities to work like Printer, mouse & keyboard etc.

    Could not get any other better program apart from this for the moment, yes
    but it does the job for me.

    Thanks Again.
