Google Chrome pepflashplayer.dll

We have a specific version of Chrome because we need it for some of the applications to work.  We copied the pepflashplayer folder from the newest version of Google Chrome and we replaced the same folder in the Google Chrome directory.  The reason why we did this, is because of all the vulnerabilities in the older versions Adobe Flash.  There was no granular way to just disable the pepflashplayer in an corporate environment so that the Google Chrome would pick up the system flash that we do keep updated on a regular basis.   The question is has anyone replaced the pepflashplayer.dll folder, and does it fully work?  We tested flash websites with this method and the sites were working.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Instead of engineering unsafe fixed-version chrome, I would suggest to spend time well to make applications work with all modern browsers.

The new Site we are using will use HTML5 so it will not need flash player.  That process is being worked on right now.  Until that is complete we still need people to be able to access the site and flash is the only thing that will work with the site.   When that site is finished, then we will be able to fully update Google Chrome, so everything else gets updated.  To enable/disable we are not able to do this through Group Policy, there is no granular way of doing this.  I see you may do this on each individual computer, but if you have an enterprise environment there is not enough manpower to do this.  We called Google support about this and they said the only way you can update flash is to update the browser.   That is why we tried a few other options to see if it works.

Your initial posting DOES NOT STATE THAT YOU NEED FLASH PLAYER.
Thats how you got couple of options to get rid of it.
Hank LieuranceAuthor Commented:
No we did not get rid of flash, we came across a plugin called "Flashcontrol" for Google Chrome.  It blocks flash unless the person clicks to play.   For now that looks like the solution we will take until the site is finished.
