I want to disable USB drive

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I've noticed recently that my PC in the office is experiencing a lot of viruses,

I found out that some of my co-workers are inserting their USBs on my PC which might be the culprit.

I want to restrict the USB peripheral drive from other users.

What are the steps to make?
