    Thanks Brian 😇 Fantastic topic . Very helpful .

    I often come across this challenge from many government officials . And in absence of my software arsenal , I do follow this method . Home or office — most of the infections spread in India via USB autorun .

    How do you get a device, like a scanner, that is plugged into your USB port disabled similarly to a flash drive so you can unplug it? I do not like to just 'unplug it' and I do not think I should have to shut my tower down just to disconnect the device… Even the 'scanning' program has been closed and the computer claims that the device is still being used, which it is NOT to my knowledge… even though the power light is still 'on' the device. It does NOT use a power cord, just the USB attachment. I have no difficulties removing my external hard drive, but it does have a separate power cord.

    Wonder if there's a way to disable the Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad on a laptop…
    that can not be disabled in device manager ?

    There is a much easier way to do this, but it does require about five or six years studying karate, if someone tries to plug in a USB device you give them a karate chop. Depending upon your reaction time it could only take less than a second to disable their ability to plug a USB device in.
