Free utility controls user access to USB drives

Subscriber Bill Henderson writes, ?I am one of the IT managers that distrusts USB drives. A work-around is to download a program called DEVCON.EXE from the Microsoft web site. Distribute that round the network, then force-run it on logon with parameters "disable @USB/*" to kill off all USB activity." Nice find Bill.  Devcon is a good free alternative to some expensive commercial products that do the same thing. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=311272...
