How do i block access to usb and ethernet port completely?

Basically all i want is to protect my content from getting copied to a USB FLASH Drive or through a ethernet cable to some other computer so all i want is to stop access to these places

I tried some of the things already -

1. Password protecting (does not work)
2. Disabling USB Flash Drive through BuduLock software (does not work)


SO all i want is a concrete and absolute solution, if there is one, to protect my data in my computer and stop it from being accessed by others through above stuffs i mentioned.

Harshjn04 Welcome to the windows 7 forum.

The best way to protect your pc be it laptop or tower. Put a password on your bios that won't allow you to boot your machine without a strong password.

Strong passwords so that you are the only one that can use it is the best protection.

yeah richnrockville passwords are the best ways but not in my case as i told above it does not work for me
all because at start of boot time the machine asks for password and then when someone come he just wants to know it and i cannot help telling him or "her", you know...!!!
so it creates a problem

There is no solution that can prevent you from telling other people your login password

Be very careful setting the BIOS password on a laptop. It can be very hard, almost impossible, to reset it if you forget it or typed it in wrong.
