    I seem to have done something wrong here.... It doesn't matter where I put the hashlist file nothing in there appears to get blocked, rather the FlashPlayer is killed... It did work last night but not now - not sure what I have done. I have removed and reinstalled but still the same issue - any clues?

    Be a bit of a dictator on this one, advise all users that flash files not generated as part of course work will constitute a breach of school policy and result in their account being filescreened for flash files. Thats a simple thing to do.

    Put the onus back on them, and take it off yourself

    Dont forget who sets the rules

    If they want to pass a course the balls in their court.

    I would probably make them save legitimate course related flash files in one shared folder (with subfolders per student) for their class.

    That way you would only have to monitor that shared folder.

    Then i would filescreen flash files out of existence within their home folders

    Thats just one way id probably go about it.

    You might also consider, if you havent done so already, removing executable permissions for removable drives (Removable Storage Access in Group Policy)

    We got sick of spending hours trying to work around students trying to work around us, and came to the realisation that if they were spending time trying to circumvent school policy, then they were not applying themselves to coursework anyways, and the best thing to do was to actually enforce school policy and if necessary lock their account down even further as well.

    Such students tend to play on the fact that any mitigation you attempt will have to apply to every one and think you will likely not do so as the effects on many would cause disruption. Switch the tables on this thinking and save yourself hours of frustration by punishing the particular user, and not everyone.

    Let them know who's in charge.

    This is actually working - I was being a bit of a gun jumper. The Hash rules only apply when the user attempts to run the .swf in IE, FlashPlayer itself is simply killed - which is fine by me - students creating work can preview in IE and I will get a list of .swfs to check any way. However, within 20 minutes 1 bright spark started to run their games in WMP - which I removed from students and installed VLC - so at present this solution is kind of working for me

    Is the GameKiller software still available for download? I've tried the links but they appear broken now.

    Does Gamekiller only work with IE or is there a way for it to notice what's going on in Chrome?
