Disable Protected Mode in Flash 11.3 and above by adding the line ProtectedMode=0 to the Flash "mms.cfg" file located in:

 

(Windows 32bit) C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash

(Windows 64bit) C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash

 

For example, on a Windows 7 64-bit system, open the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, copy the file "mms.cfg" to the desktop, open it in Notepad, add a new line ProtectedMode=0 and then close Notepad, saving your changes. Next, go back to the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash folder, rename the original file to "mms.cfgBAK" (to save it as a backup) and then drag and drop in the modified "mms.cfg" file from the desktop.

 

Reboot your computer, launch the game in your browser and enjoy the boost !

Please note that by doing this, you are disabling Protected Mode (Sandbox mode) in Firefox. This may open your Flash Player up to security vulnerabilities. Use at your own risk.

Will that boost will do anything to the game at all? Like unexpected things happening in the game (exploiting it)? If so let Con fix that one. I'm just concerned :P

No, it will not affect the security of the game. But it may have adverse effects on the security of your system. In general you *should* be fine, however exploits do exist in the wild, and although Adobe does their best to patch the player, sometimes there will be flaws. Protected Mode exists to protect your computer against exploits, not to protect the actual content being played within Flash Player (in this case, Dead Zone).
