Disable USB Port on Windows 7 via group policy in Windows server 2003 R2

    Question

  • Hi!

    Group policy in Windows Server 2003 RD AD to disable USB port does not apply on on windows 7 PC's. It works fine on Windows 10. Disabling the port directly on Windows 7 pc's also does not work. It enables when the system restarts. Please help.

  • Hi Nair,

    Are you disabling USB drive or USB port (as there are several USB ports on a single machine)? Give me me more information, let me help you with that.
