Does anyone know how to purposefully cause Flash to crash in Internet Explorer by killing something (i.e. process or plugin container) from the command line? I know how to kill processes remotely and have admin rights inside my lab, however, I cannot figure out how to crash Flash running in IE.
Details: I teach high school students and am not shy about closing programs they have open that have nothing to do with the work they're supposed to be doing. Closing processes like IExplore.exe and Firefox.exe is easy. However, sometimes, I don't want to kill IE outright because the student may be using it on a legitimate assignment, but I do want to kill the Flash game they've wandered on to in another tab. And, I don't want to disable Flash altogether because sometimes, it is necessary for legitimate work. I guess you can say I want to deliver precision strikes to Flash running in IE.
It's easy to kill the Flash container in Firefox by killing the plugin_container.exe process, but so far, I've been unable to figure out (or find) how to do this in IE.
(Please don't try to give me a lesson on controlling my class. If I don't have the support of administration to enforce rules and punish students for undesirable behavior, my process killing is the only way to keep a lot of the students focused. And no, rewards for good behavior don't always work either.)
