[Dshield] Disable USB storage devices?

Hello,

A colleague recently asked me if it was possible to disable a system
(Windows 2000 & XP) from using USB storage devices?  For example, we
want a system to be able to use USB printers, scanners, etc.  But we
don't want a user to be able to plug in a memory stick or zip drive.

Any thoughts?  Would non-administrator accounts be good enough to
block this?  What about for admin accounts, any third party software
that can block it?

Thanks,
Shane
