This will only work for New USB flash devices that are plugged into the machine. To fully disable the USB Storage driver, you'll need to do the following:


Open Registry Editor.


In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key:


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\USBSTOR


Locate the following value (DWORD):


Start


and give it a value of 4.


Close Registry Editor. You do not need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.


To re-enable the setting, go to the Reg Key above and give the Start Dword a value of 3
