    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.
