Go to Control Panel > Flash Player.
If you don't want the prompt, you can allow sites to save information on your computer or block all sites.
I have my setting on allow.

This is actually my preferred way to handle what flash player does and stores/ (ask for actions) Allow when I choose to do so,
Every commercial will not automatically play and store garbage on my machine,
But what to do with the setting as posted by C-11 you can alter it to always allow and store files.
Another way after you use allow is to right click the video and click on Settings or Global settings and find the same settings,
And simply drag the slider to the right, and check the box Never ask again.

Thanks for the replies. What is it that I'd be allowing...anything that I shouldn't allow on the computer? If I choose don't allow, will the videos still play? lastly, I have noticed, at times, when clicking allow or Deny the popup, nothing happens?

Usually a sign you need to switch to Compatibility View using the Broken page icon on the right end of the url address bar, or the F12 key and click on Browser mode.
What are you allowing/ your allowing Temporary files to be stored on your machine and site cookies.

OK, so allowing detection and storage doesn't cause me any liability, or does it?

Not really the way you have it setup now just gives a bit more control as to what content per-site stores information and how much.
Which you can clear this information at any time going to the Adobe setting page as C-11 had offered the page and click on Delete All button.
You can also use Ctrl+Shift+Delete or Alt+TD and delete browser history.
C-11 offered this link with the clearest explanation about what is retained,
