Dear All,

I would like to do following on my XP Pro Computer.

Restrict Removal media i.e. CD Rom, Floppy
Restrict 2 USB ports out of 4
Restrictions should not affect administrator group.
Do not using any 3rd party software.
If any tool from Microsoft would sufficient?

Thanks

I don't know of a program that does all that in itself; although there are a number of security programs out there. The Ultimate Boot CD at http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/

However, I can manage a few of the things on your list with a simple registry fix.

U can create a new hardware profile n disable the devices which u dont want others to access n u can use the default profile with all active devices for the administrator.
The devices u will disable in new hardware profile will not b accessible to the user whoever logs on with that new profile.
i hope it will work


all d best
