Is it unclear what I am asking?

I keep getting an Adobe Flash pop up when I use youtube.
I have never experienced this before a month or so ago.
Can anyone please help?

There was a fake Adobe popup going around a while back. I'm not sure exactly what it looked like as I didn't get it myself, but 0KB? Sounds a little iffy to me.

One thing you could try is running DU verify the disk, then verify permissions and repair permissions (in that order) Might help.

I opened Disk Utility and followed all three steps in the order you recommended. I will get back if this weird Adobe Flash is still lurking about !
Thank you

Got to System Preferences -> Flash Player -> Storage tab

There you can allow/deny flash sites from storing local information. It is currently set to "Ask me..." therefore you get the popup on every flash site.
