Hello,

Im looking to remove ALL Shockwave player(s) from all computers in my domain.
I would prefer to do this in a logon/GPO so I can set it and forget it, and if someone does install it without my permission then the next reboot/log on it will be removed.  Users logging in will no have admin rights on the machines and this should run silently.

I can only assume that there might be multiple instances of the player installed on a single machine so the script should check to see if it is installed, remove it, reboot if it has to, recheck to see if it has shockwave player, remove if it is found / log on if not.

See http://wpkg.org/Shockwave_Player for a silent uninstaller.  Check out the Home page as well.

How it actually works I couldn't tell you so you'd have to experiment.
