A department head is asking us to block people from being able to play flash videos in Excel 2003. We can't run a batch file to delete them because they're sending it to themselves in email. We can't deny email access and we can't remove their ability to use Excel. We set up a GPO but it doesn't seem to be working.

Does anyone have any thoughts, ideas or suggestions for this? I've already researched online, a lot. We can't block Flash or Excel completely, among a few ideas for solutions, because we have over 500 users and need to create a GPO or possibly create a script that will disable flash or macros just within Excel possibly. I am hoping for a general solution within Excel, aside from moving to Office 2K7.

Thanks Mark, I don't know why I didn't think of heading directly to the Flash source in the first place!

I appreciate the help.
