The thing is that if I create the key/dword and put in the value 1 in
manually, it works fine, write access to USB devices is disallowed.  If I
use the ADM, though, it creates the key and dword, but doesn't put the
correct value in, it stays 0.

We tried this numerous times, but certain USB sticks were still able to load and were accessible.

hopefully Darren has the magic bullet for this.  I have heard of shops
actually putting epoxy in the ports...

We use a product that took care of this.  If you want info on it
please email me direct.

I am very curious to see if there is a workable solution in GP...
