Registry Settings

If you want to disable all USB ports, not just USB storage, then the best way probably would be to do it through the BIOS. But then USB mice/keyboards won't work.

If you want to disable just the USB storage to stop users using memory sticks etc, then in the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\UsbStor

Edit the value of 'Start'

4 will disable USB storage devices
3 will enable them

not sure if forum rules allow a product recommendation... do a google seach on 'usb port control' and look for a product made by a certain firewall vendor.
