    SWF Files


    We are having a complete nightmare at the moment with SWF files. We have managed to stop them opening from home folders and memory sticks (using USBDLM) but if they drag and drop the swf into Internet Explorer it will still open. We have got around this by disabling the flash shockwave object add-on from IE and this seems to have done the trick. Most flash websites still work such as you tube but a lot of the teaching resources websites that have little embedded games no longer work as they use shockwave and it is becoming a huge problem for our teachers.

    If we re-enable the add-on it will mean students are free to bring in swf files from home, drag and drop in IE and generally use this to waste time.

    Is there any other way we can stop all local swf's but still allow websites that have them?

    If you set group policy to deny swf executing using app locker/ software restriction.
