Handle Shockwave Flash Object in VB.Net

I have an axshockwaveflash object (named axshockwaveflash1) that displays timed information in our VB.Net winforms application.

It works just as we want it BUT, when we click on the flash object, it launches a browser and displays a webpage that isn't valid.  We don't use the URL yet but we will in the future.

I'm thinking I'd like to be able to prevent this from happening by handling the axshockwaveflash1.enter event.

Private Sub AxShockwaveFlash1_Enter(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles AxShockwaveFlash1.Enter

'''Prevent Flash from launching browser here

    End Sub

What's the best way to do this?

Example at below link shows how to disable right click menu.


Changing WM_RBUTTONDOWN to WM_LBUTTONDOWN should disable the left click.
