I am struggling

by tintoman In reply to Disable USB

for a reason why anyone would want to do this, if you don't want to use the usb ports why don't you just refrain from plugging anything in to them?
If you don't want anyone else to use them either just put a little piece of tape over them, otherwise I can think of no sensible reason to do what you are suggesting

Are you really Ernst Stavro Blofeld ?? ...

Because what you are asking makes as much sense as why you always had that stupid fluffy white cat in all your appearances in the James Bond films.

I don't understand what you are asking either.

Maybe the cat knows the answer!

Block ports except keyboard/mouse?

Have a look here:;en-us;823732

This will "prevent users from connecting to a USB storage device", but should still allow you to connect a USB keyboard and mouse.
