    This tutorial will show you how to prevent access to all removable storage drives like CD, DVD and USB Pen Drives in Windows Vista. This will be useful in order to prevent any kind of unwanted data to be copied or moved to your computer and also to prevent harmful programs that can access your computer from any removable devices.

    Here's how you can do this>>>

    * Click on Start button, type gpedit.msc in the search box and press Enter
    * Click on Continue to bypass the UAC prompt.
    * In the left pane, navigate to User Configuration>>Administrative Templates>>System>>Removable Storage Access
    * In the right pane, double-click on Removable Storage Access: Deny all access

    * In the dialog box that appears click on Enabled.
    * Click on OK.
