Can't you just disable running programs and or USB devices via group policy?

  We spent some time looking at products to control USB  devices last year and 
found quite a few out there.  Some were very basic and simply disable USB 
ports, but if you need something more flexible DisknetPro looked very good, 
although not particularly cheap:-
  Beyond a corporate policy on USB devices we haven't actually implemented 
anything yet, but I reckon this will crop up again.

  Hi , 
  We have put out a number of fat clients lately and are concerned about users 
using the USB devices for non business related activity.
  Is there any particular product that is being used or recommended. We intend 
to upgrade to PS 4 for XP shortly so something compatible if possible.
