What is the Code Or Script For Enable Or Disable Usb Ports Using Visual Basic Programming ?

1 solution

AFAIK it is not possible.

There are third party downloads available that can control them, or you can disable manually via the BIOS or by device manager.

I had this problem recently and I did not find a resolution to it.

I do know that you can catch whether anything is plugged in or out and do an interrupt, but this involves dicking around in the register, and given that you are a student doing an assignment I suspect you may not be up to this task.

I would suggest that you could call the Device Manager programatically and switch off from there.
