1.) USB Storage Device - Enable or Disable Connecting

Another option:

Disable USB ports on Windows PC via Registry Note about this, this will disable all USB ports, including mice and keyboards that are usb. If the pcs do not have the older ps2 ports to hook up a ps2 mouse and keyboard, this method is not a good idea.

2.) Just disconnect the power to the disk drive and put the case back together. Simple. Or remove it entirely. Or disable in device manager.

3.) Try opendns. You can block internet categories or specific websites system wide regardless of what browser they use. (If applied on router) Or use Parental controls in windows 7 for standard user accounts to do the blocking. You can also use the host file to block websites as well. Their are multiple ways to do it.

Looking for web filtering and activity reports in Windows Parental Controls?

Set up Parental Controls - Microsoft Windows Help
