Disabling USB, CD-ROM, Floppy Disk and LS-120 drivers

June 8th, 2005

Many corporate admins will welcome this add-on policy template for Windows XP Pro that allows USB, CD-ROM, Floppy Disk and LS-120 drivers to be disable (if you're not a corporate admin then look away now!).

Details of this can be found in the Microsoft article 555324. This will dramatically boost PC security and make is harder for others to take data without authorization.

Many thanks to Simon Geary, an MVP, for taking the time to develop this.
