    How to enable USB that is blocked by group policy

    How to get access to the USB, it is blocked by the group policy.

    The value under the USBSTOR is 3 for hexadecimal. How can I enable the USB if its blcked by Group Policy?

    The USB does show under the device manager, but there is a red cross over it. When I right click and enable the device it gets enable for a moment and get disable again.

    What can be done?

    I am assuming as this is your first post and that you are asking us about this that you don't actually have admin rights to go onto group policy and just allow the device lol.

    I think the point is that it kinda sounds like you are a user trying to bypass the restrictions on a network you don't manage. As you aren't known we can't tell if this is the case or not.

    Your original question asked how to bypass a setting put in place by an administrator. If you are that administrator you will have the rights on the machine/network to allow you to have that setting not affect you. If you are not the administrator perhaps you should be talking to him/her and not us?

    There must be a reason for it to be blocked. Your only real way round this is to get the policy changed.

    bit touchy faizzsheikh. Exactly as the others said, if you don't have the rights to get to group policy settings, which for this will be on the server then maybe you shouldn't be playing with the settings put in place by your administrators.

    To be honest @faizzsheikh I don't think that anyone here is going to help you circumvent restrictions put on your work network. Kinda our job to enforce network security

    How about you talk to the person responsible for this restriction being in place?

    no no, no need to be like that. So long as you use the computer then you own it, don't worry about the administrators they're irrelevant. all you need to do is press up , down, left , right , A, B C.
