Hello,

We have problem running a web-based application with Adobe's Flash Player 10.1 on our Windows 7 computers.  If we right click the black screen after running the program and go to adobe settings then untick enable hardware acceleration, the program works great.  But if another user logs into that computer, it is enabled again.

I would like to deploy a permanent action to disable it, preferably through group policy.  I was trying to look into changing a registry setting but I'm not sure if it is possible.

Thank you,

I don't know the registry key/setting for that but once you find it you can use group policy preferences to set it/create it. More on GPP and working with teh registry below

Bookmarked!  I was just looking at those settings this morning which made me think about the registry.  Thanks for the reference.
