Hide external files from browser progress bars and activity windows

I have a Flash project that uses a SWF file for background music.  I want to hide that this file is being downloaded from browsers' progress bar/activity windows.  For example, under Safari, when you click on Activity, I do not want the background music SWF to be listed.  How best can I mask this?  Thanks!

I don't think you can hide it...  SWF file is transferred via http protocol and everything is visible under that...

Hmm... I think if you load it dynamically it will not display as loading that asset, but I have not tested that.
