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...

Hey folks,
I've implemented a few custom ADMs without any difficulty.  I have one,
however, that doesn't seem to want to work properly.  It's one I found it
over at thelazyadmin.com .  The ADM is supposed to disable write access to
USB devices.  When I manually create the key and dword, everything works
fine, but when I try to implement it through a GPO, it creates the key and
dword, but doesn't place the appropriate value (1) into the registry.  Here
are the contents of the ADM:

CATEGORY "Removeable Storage Write Access"
 POLICY "USB Write Access"
   VALUENAME "WriteProtect"

As an additional note, I'll mention that this is the only machine specific
policy I'm trying to enforce within this GPO, everything else is on the user
side.  I had thought that maybe I had instituted a policy that was keeping
the key from being generated, but everything show up except for the
appropriate value.

Thanks in advance,
