Do you have enhanced OS version 4 and above?  If so, use the application firewall.  There is an Application Firewall wizard with the latest firmware update from MySonicWALL.com

Under the "Multimedia" group of signatures you'll find the sig list includes, for example

Flash Video 1
Flash Video 2...
IceCast Streaming Content Delivery
Microsoft Media Server Generic Streaming
Quicktime Client
RealMedia
Shockwave Flash

I don't think you can click just one button to disable them all but it wont' take you long to turn all of those frmo "detect" to "prevent". And just as quick to turn back on any which the boss complains about! :-)
