    Every few moments (like maybe 20 minute intervals, or sometimes randomly) while on Chrome, a pop up will occur saying this:

    Adobe® Flash® Player has stopped a potentially unsafe operation. The following local application on your computer or network:


    is trying to communicate with this Internet-enabled location:

    To let this application communicate with the Internet, click Settings.
    You must restart this application after changing your settings.

    I just click OKAY. Does anyone know what this is? And more importantly, how I can get rid of it? It keeps popping up... =T

    Google didn't really help.

    I see, thanks for the response.

    Is there anyway to stop it from popping up?
