how get rid of adobe pop ups

hello all,

everyday on different sites, i get an adobe pop up stating that so-and-so wants to use my computer for their storage. options; yes or delete.

the pop up stays in the middle of the monitor screen, blocking out whatever you're trying to do.

i keep hitting "delete/no", but it won't go away.

help, please ?

Re: adobe

- Adobe, that can be Flash, Shockwave, Air, PDF. Which one?
- If Flash, did you already disable the hardware accelleration (google FLASH DISABLE HARDWARE ACCELLERATION for how to do that)

If that doesn't help please tell more:
- how to repeat your issue (what url and what to click to get that message)
- the exact message you get (if long, make a screen print, upload that to your favorite picture sharing site and post a link)

Some things to try

Uncheck any Adobe references in msconfig as these are largely for update checking. Also set Adobe services from Automatic to Manual. That should help somewhat.

It's Adobe Flash Asking Storage Permission. Fix It Like.....

It's a setting in Adobe Flash where you've set it to ask for permission each time this occurs..Fix it by opening the Control Panel, double click on the "Flash" icon, click on the "Storage" tab, then place a dot/tick in the options which says: "Block all sites from storing information on this computer", then close the window.

Hope this helps.
