Yeah, that's why you would do it as a machine-assigned software install...It 
will have admin rights because it is running at NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM.

Thank you Jamie...I got the msi download and will try it out. I'm not sure 
it'll work as I'm reading on the site that local admin rights are still needed, 
but we'll see...

There is a Flash Player ActiveX MSI package available through the Adobe 
Distribution program. It's free but you have to signup. Push that out through 
machine assigned software and you should be good to go.

Hi All...
I'm not sure if any of you experienced this in the past, but there was an Excel 
spreadsheet that was being passed around via email that had games inbedded into 
it using Flash (Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, and a couple others). As such, we used GP 
to not allow users to be able to use Flash. Since there hasn't been a problem 
with that lately, and the fact that more and more websites are using Flash we 
have come to the point to allow Flash again. We disallowed it by setting 
permissions on the Flash folder using GP. I have since changed the permissions 
accordingly, but am still having a 2nd 'ary problem. When going to a site with 
Flash, users are prompted to download Flash, by getting the ActiveX bar at the 
top of their IE window. They click on it and prompted to download/install Flash 
but since they're not local admins (only power users) they still can't see the 
web page correctly. Is there way using GP to allow ActiveX to automatically 
install (which may be a risk) or any way around this that you guys are aware of?

Thanks in advance!
