    Use of USB devices is sometimes the easiest way to get infected by a virus.

    Perhaps you want to control the usage so that another user cannot copy something to an external device.







    Learn, in this guide, how to protect yourself from attacks via a USB drive.

    Okay this is a solution for your problems:

    Press WinKey + R, type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    Windows will then load the Local Group Policy Editor:
