Both work perfectly.. just one advice ... keep a copy of Usbstor.pnf and 
Usbstor.inf in different location because if you want to re-enable 
access to the USB .. well it gets a little tricky... I remember having 
to replace the files with files from another machine, because, just 
returning the values in the registry to the old values or default ones 
wouldn't work.

Have a great  day.
