Hi Cristo,

Definitely, you can disable the Pen Drive so that you get control of whatever loads in it. I will tell you how you can do that which is also recommended by Microsoft.
 
Usually, we need to configure the registry key that controls the UsbStor driver not to load on boot.
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesUsbStor
 
Start > 4 (disabled) the driver will not start on boot
Start > 3 (enabled) the driver will start on boot
 
The advantage is that this is the appropriate way to disable/enable USB drives. Please note that this trick is not going to work on Windows 2003 version as it will automatically reset it, recreating the USB storage enabled.
 
I hope this information helps you.
 
Good luck!
