If you only have the swf, then you can't edit the fla to remove left-clicking, Your only option is to do it at the browser level. You can do it in IE, but not firefox. This also disables the whole page, not just your swf.

<script language="javascript">
function noLeftClick() {
   if (event.button==1) {
   }
}
document.onmousedown=noLeftClick
</script>

BTW, you can't do it at the embed part.

thanks, but basically here if I understood well, if there is a button acting as a link on my webpage, it will be disabled as well?

No, Flash will override the Javascript settings. It will still be clickable. I'm pretty sure there is no way to stop it without the fla file.
