As a system administrator, i would like to disable users playing Flash games embedded within MS Excel.

Is there any way to get this done other than creating a OU in the AD or removing Flash and MS Excel completely ?

I would have thought disabling Flash alone would do it. I've never worked at a company that could survive without Excel so I'm not sure I'd recommend that!
Even easier would be a formal company policy on games playing at work?
