W7 prompting me to allow adobe flash

Just about every time I click a link, or go to a new page, W7 prompts me to "allow adobe flash player installer". I click yes everytime but it will pop up again when i refresh or go to a new page. Is there any way to get this to stop?

You could try installing Flash?

seriously though, I'm going to assume that you don't want flash on your system for some reason. Thats fair enough. The reason you are being asked is because the websites you are visiting contain Flash Content what browser do you use?

ok do this: open IE8 and click Tools>Internet Options click the security tab and then click Custom Level scroll down until you see "Download Signed Activex Controls" change it to Disabled (warning: this means it won't ask you to download Activex controls any more, which are sometimes needed for certain sites)

As you are new to the forum I thought you might like to know how to mark threads as solved as well as the uses of some of the other buttons.

To the top right of this post you will see 3 icons. An orange (+), a set of scales and a red and white warning triangle.

The orange (+) or blue (-) denotes whether a user is on or offline (orange = on, blue = off).

The scales are used to give rep points; click this button if someone has helped you significantly or solved your queries (only give this to posts that you think really deserve it).

The red and white warning triangle is used to denote either an abusive post OR to mark a thread as solved (just put solved in the box that comes up and the admins or moderators will mark it solved).

I'll mark it as solved for you this time

Hi MK2, actually using 64 bit Internet Explorer wouldn't prompt you to download Flash as there is not a 64 bit version of flash

Hi, Screamz.

Considering the vulnerabilities in older versions of Flash Player and the recent update, you may want to confirm you have the most recent version. You can verify the Flash Player version for each browser installed (in your case IE) at About Flash Player page.

Should you not have the latest version, you can use the direct download for IE at: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flas..._player_ax.exe

Should you wish to uninstall the previous version first, you can get the unisntaller at How to uninstall the Adobe Flash Player plug-in and ActiveX control )

Yes i know.
I had this problem myself, when you are using IE 64bit and there is a
site using flash then you will be asked to install flash but because there
is no flash for 64bit it won't install and everytime you reload the page you
will get the same question again.
