    Sites not showing flash as pupil but ok for staff

    Just been reported to me this one, and it's off site so can't verify anything on client machines but:

    Kid logs on to a PC, goes to, say, Kids Games, Kids Movies, Kids Music, and More - Yahoo! Kids and all they get is lots of red Xs and white boxes. Staff member logs in and can view the site properly.
    So obviously flash is installed, but not working for students.

    Is there anything I should be looking at in particular to get this working for students?

    Server is SBS running ISA. Clients are XP

    Check the security setting in IE for students and compare it to the setting for staff. I bet the kids are overly restricted.

    Not sure what version of flash, I only do the remote support, not the actual on site support.
    Member of staff has checked the IE security settings and said pupil and staff ones appear the same. So possibly either the GPO settings for students, or a setting in ISA on the student policy.
    Not sure which (if either) it could be though

    ISA rules would be where I would look.

    Create a new blank OU, and drag your test student account in there.
    Check inheritance to ensure default domain policy and your new blank student policy is all that's being applied.

    If you can see the graphics then you can set the IE settings for the user to match your current student policy and see if it changes.

    Once you find the culprit, apply it to the students.
