Read this article to do it like a pro...

...or use this tool MyUSBonly.

Now I did download a 'free for non-commercial use' version some three months ago, but it is not free anymore.
I can mail you the version (2 Mbyte) I download if you PM me with your mail-address.

Don't know if this version still works or not, but at least you can give it a shot before you buy  :)

EDIT:
I did test it at the time and it works. Had to de-install it though, because a lot of people came by with digital camera's so I needed the ports again. 

EDIT2:
After doing a Google I also find a registry tweak that should do the trick. You will need this tweak to enable writing again.
