I was not sure where to post this, so I started here. Long story short, I used a custom template from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555324 to restrict USB, CD activity on one of our network computers.
End users were playing around and removed the USB cable to the local printer, and tried to plug it back in. Due to the restriction, windows could not identify the printer, so it stopped working.
I thought it would be a quick fix and simple task of removing the adm template and forcing a gpupdate.
That did not work, and now I am stumped.
USB access and CDROM appear to remain restricted even though the template was removed, and the policy refreshed.
I browsed the registry and USBSTOR has the appropriate settings.
What can I do to re-enable the USB / CDROM functionality?
