    Is there a way to restrict user traffic on USB eg .exe files.

    Situation we are having at the moment is that students are running games and applications from thier usb drives.

    We run windows Xp on our client PC and they are a member of a 2003 AD

    If you can suggest any way of stopping this I would appreciate it, also if there is any more info you need please ask.

    If you check the Misc Forum, there is a sticky on blocking USB drives:

    This will block everything.
    Maybe if you can get the names of some of the main exe files they are using, specific policies to prevent them running, but you’ll always be a step behind the students.

    There is always “social engineering” – If I catch you running games / unauthorised apps, you will get one warning (logged) and then banned for 2 weeks. Make sure you stick with it!
