I want to disable Adobe Flash Add-On for IE
In Windows Server 2008, I opened the Group Policy Editor and went to:
Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Security Features\Add-on Management or User Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Internet Explorer\Security Features\Add-on Management
I enabled the Add-On List
Value Name:  Class ID (of Adobe Shockwave Object)
Value: 0 (zero)

I saved, then ran GPUPDATE /FORCE on Server, then workstation.
The Adobe Shockwave Object is still enabled on workstation.

Any help would be appreciated

Hello.

Did you use the Group Policy Management console or just the gpedit.msc Local Group Policy editor?

If you know the name of the policy that this setting is applied under you can try running rsop.msc on the client machine to see if the policy name is being applied or not for that setting. If it is being applied it might be worth double checking the class ID matches exactly what is seen in the browser.

If the policy is not being applied you may have set this as a local policy that will only impact that server or it may be a policy that is not linked to an OU where the client machine is located in the Active Directory.

You could also test the same steps you took on the server on one client machine directly by using gpedit.msc on the client PC.

Best regards.
