Adobe Flash Player. How do I remove The Settings Panel?

by Relmech1 / December 1, 2011 9:20 AM PST

When ever playing You Tube videos, or other videos using Adobe Flash Player, I find the centre of my display is hidden by the Adobe Flash Player settings box, which is constantly inoperative.

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">It is an iMac Aluminium, Operating System Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion. Start up disk macintosh HD.<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">This became a recent problem, having recently opened an emailed video. I find that the Flash Player settings panel opens in the centre of the video screen with a message that seeks permission to install information onto my computer. However the settings panel will not accept any given instructions.
<span>It appears that this is occurring now whenever using Flash player, with the settings panel occupying the centre of the screen.
<span>Thanks for your support.

My only thought is your computer is blocking that connection you noted.

Thanks for that, could you please suggest how I may resolve such a blockage?
I ask, because I am relatively new to this.
Thanks again.
