The following gets a value from the registry. Normally it is set to 3. If you set it to 4 then USB access will be denied. However, setting the value requires admin access.

My.Computer.Registry.GetValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR\","Start",0)

To set a new value use

My.Computer.Registry.SetValue("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\USBSTOR\","Start",4,Microsoft.Win32.RegistryValueKind.DWord)
