We don't want a user plug-in USB-memory sticks into a Windows-7 notebook to prevent copying data. But of course, she should be able to use USB keyboard and mouse. Is it possible to tell Windows to prevent any USB-memory stick?

There is a Group Policy named Prevent Installation of Removable Devices that can help you.

It can be found here: Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Device Installation -> Device Installation Restrictions
