Try going into the Device Manager and disable the Universal Serial Bus Controllers.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I remember companies used to put a lock over the floppy drives, could something similar be implemented?

How Employers Disable USB Ports & How Employees Enable them again

So a more reasonable option for sysadmins is to disable write access to USB port so that data files cannot be written to the mass storage device. The USB thumb drive will be read-only.

There is more, so chose the option that works best for you.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
