    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    This is getting quite frustrating now having to run round the school typing in administrator username and passwords, so if anyone has any suggestion no matter how crazy I would like to hear from them

    We have a similar problem, we let students use memory keys, so they have work on them, recently every machine has started to request admin details, this is because the drivers are not digitally signed but they are Microsoft default drivers, and the same memory key works fine on the test machine which has the same GPO being applied, by using USB DLM, some of the machine have started to work but not all of them, we are not particularly keen on distributing a fix that does not work on all machines. This is a recent problem, as in the last two weeks we have had one or two request which we though nothing off, but today we have had requests from all over the school asking us to install memory keys. Does anyone have any ideas why the drivers are now unsigned which were previously signed.

    p.s. we have recreantly added Microsoft as a trusted publisher in software restriction policy but we tried turning it off and still we had the same problem, (however we did just remove the certificate and it is our only certificate, so it may not have undone any changes that it made)

    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    One trick that usually works on our network is to switch the PC off then plug in the USB drive and then switch the PC on - it gets installed by the system not the user like this so that access rights are not an issue.

    Sounds crazy - but it usually works for our students.

    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    Unfortunately that does not seem to have worked. Any other crazy ideas?

    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    Beechen Cliff this end.

    This is how we do it.

    We install our OS + any software (i.e.Studio 8, MS office, updates etc). Then we create a Local user. Using this account, we configure all of our apps (including those pesky add ins for excel) and set all of our preferences (i.e. Office toolbars, layouts, - Basicly anything that can be fiddled with; we fiddle. We then install drivers for every camera, printer, mouse keyboard, scanner and anything else we can think of. We then plug in our USB kit (authenticate if needed) - assign the correct drive letters etc.
    Then reboot, log in as local admin - copy our local users profile to the default profile..........

    Works for Us.

    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    Are the drivers certified? Theres a way of doing a newtwork install if they are. Not sure if it is completely relevant but I remember a similar situation and somebody got a fix from MS.

    Re: Allowing Users to use USB Flash Drives

    On an affected workstation, try emptying out the %systemroot%\system32\catroot2 folder, then register the following files:

    regsvr32.exe /s Cryptdlg.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Mssip32.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Slbcsp.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Sccbase.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Gpkcsp.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Rsaenh.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Dssenh.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Initpki.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Wintrust.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s Softpub.dll
