Access control configurations are applied to all Windows accounts.


To block access to data on removable media (USB flash, floppy, CD/DVD, ZIP drives, etc.), enable the appropriate option. To block sending jobs to printers, enable the Block sending jobs to printers option. This option is disabled by default. You can also block data transfer over network (LAN and the Internet).

Infected USB devices can be identified by your computer as a keyboard. If you want Dr.Web to check whether the connected USB device is a keyboard, enable the Notify on BadUSB vulnerable devices detected as a keyboard option.
