    Solved one problem, another arises

    Does it ever end??

    I was successfully able to block students from running .exe files from their flash drive *thanks to this site* but now, I am having students complaing that their U3 flash drive doesnt work. When they try to access the drive it does not work due to the "software restriction policies" This only happens to students that have U3 flash drive's, everyone else with a normal flash drive, do not notice any issues. Is there a way to disable U3 from running on these drives

    I hope this makes sense.

    "Tough" ould be my answer... say that they are an "unsupported device".

    It is possible to reformat these I believe to remove the U3 stuff but once it is gone it cannot be got back.

    I'm having this, but not with them not using them, with them using them and its chucking all the U3 stuff into profiles and documents so R2 is flagging them up under the executables file filter.
