The computer (study lab computer) that I am using has its USB disabled, hence I cannot run or copy the programs that I have in my pen-drive.
How can I run or view the contents in my pen drive.
OS: Linux Mint
Open the Windows Registry and open the following key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\ Control\StorageDevicePolicies
Now add a new DWORD called WriteProtect and put the value as 0 to disable write privileges to the USB port. To reverse the step, either delete the WriteProtect REG_DWORD or toggle the value to 1 which will enable the port.
This trick will work only on XP SP2
