    adobe message on IE

    I sometime get messages from Adobe while on the internet. It has happened on IE and I don't know if with Chrome.

    What does it mean? Do I click allow or deny? Do I need to change a setting to keep from getting the message?

    That isn't from Adobe and you Deny it.

    Are you on a particular web site when you get this ?

    It has been different sites and related to viewing a video such as something from utube. Need to pay attention and will post that info the next time. one time it was weather.com in the message.

    If you only get it on some sites then it won't be because of something installed on your computer, but run AdwCleaner anyway.

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/

    Click on Scan and when it has completed it may list some items in the lower window which you can uncheck any you want to keep.

    Click on Report and it will show if it has found anything - if it has, close the Report and click on Clean when it will produce another report after the reboot as to what it has removed.

    If it hadn't reported anything after the scan then just click on Uninstall.

    From what I read about mediasalemwebnetwork.com it seems to collect info possibly through tracking cookies with a possible view to hit you with adverts or to pass on your browsing history or collect any other info, but it appears to be a large company.

    If you Google the name you will see quite a number of links for it.

    That is a valid Adobe Flash Player message. See: http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...06.html#117632

    The name of the requesting website is in the dialog box each time. In theory, with recent versions of Flash, there should be a "Never ask again" check box:

    Flash Player Help: Local storage settings

    There are also settings at Control Panel, Flash Player, Storage; as well as an online Global Settings Storage panel

    What I read about that .com site I wouldn't let it store anything on my computer, but if it's required for YT and the like, you may have to.

    FWI Youtube can (maybe mostly) run on HTML5.

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.
