Default How does Spyware Blaster disable Flash animations? I'd like to be able to do this myself...

The application known as Spyware Blaster is capable of setting some "kill bit" to turn off Flash animations and disable the ActiveX prompt to install flash. The program can toggle it on and off, effectively giving the user the ability to disable and enable Flash animations at will.

I've always wanted to know how to do this. For instance, there is a PC in a closet at work that I sometimes use when passing to check on a forum post or something. Even with images disabled, these forums are impossible to use on a T3 Internet connection just because the system is SOOO DAMN SLOW (Original Pentium 100MHz with 32MB of RAM but feels like a Cyrix with 16 or 8MB of RAM and a uber-slow flash drive). It's the Flash ads that make it unbearable. For instance... When making a post on this forum it can take 60 seconds or more for the page to load/refresh. It's been AGES since I've touched that PC, but it's as unbearable as ever I'd imagine even after an extensive tune-up. I'd also like to disable it when browsing known "Full-page Flash advertisement" offenders like Snowball's IGN.com.
