The computer has just been built and i have just finished installing the drivers

I've just discovered that this file is to do with the Adobe Flash Player Installer - thus, is it okay/safe to just unblock it (by unticking the "Always ask...." box) ??

Yup that is safe. But there are 2 other options:

1. Re-install Flash Player & the plugin if you have it

2. Install the certificate

3. Just check the box you talked about.
