    Windows 10 x64 IE11 Flash - Must "Run As Administrator"

    Hello all.
    This is affecting hundreds of PC's at our school division. Flash worked fine when the pc's were originally deployed a few months ago. I've confirmed that ActiveX Filtering is NOT on. I've confirmed that the Flash IE Add On is enabled.

    My research leads me to believe that it is a permissions issue, either on the file system or in the registry, though I've not been able to discover where. I found a post on the Adobe site regarding resetting Flash permissions using Subinacl.exe and a script called reset_fp.bat, tried it, some of the commands in the scripts completed, many failed. After completion results were the same, Flash only runs when launching IE11 using Right Click - Run as Administrator.

    I'm wondering if there is another way to reset the default Flash permissions? Is there a way to "reinstall" the built in version of Flash?

    Oh yes, I've also tried removing the latest Flash Updates. As well I've unchecked IE11 under Control Panel- Programs - Turn Windows Features On or Off. Rebooted, then reckecked IE11 to "reinstall" it. Still no luck.

    Flash works fine in Edge by the way, however Edge is not an option for many of the sites we use.

    Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    Solved... Or at least found a work around.

    Not entirely sure why, but adding the affected sites to the "Trusted Site" list in IE11 via group policy worked.
