Hello,
i have a problem i have deployed Flash player 10.1 (upgraded from Flash Player 9 and 10) using GPO in our domain computers (about 250 PC running on Windows XP SP3), and the problem that we are facing is the after the upgrade, flash player stoped working on all the computers for none administrator users, the users cant even view their e-mails in hotmail, or open youtube videos.

is there any thing that should be enabled as Internet explorer policy? or any sollution for that

non admin or limited account, does exactly that, stops users from tampering/installing software.  you could experiment with making some users members of the power user group (used to allow printer and clock management), that might work.

my users get prompted by their IE/Firefox browsers that their Flash plug-in is out of date, same with Java, but only those with local admin rights can do the update themselves.  Elevated Privileges GPO setting doesn't apply here either, as far as I am aware, that only works with Microsoft updates.

short of getting an admin to log into each system, or using a 3rd party tool like SMS (maybe Shavlik), I don't see a way round it.
