    Hi all,
    So every time I watch the Daily Show online now, it has this thing that comes up over the picture and says "Adobe Flash PLayer Settings" saying it is requesting permission to store info on my computer, and it is requesting up to 1 MB and currently is using 100 KB. What is this? Almost afraid to click the "Deny" in case they've switched which one actually makes it download it.

    It's NOT a virus!

    That's Adobe Flash Player... requesting the ability to store information on your computer...

    That's all!

    Why would they need to store anything on my computer, though? It's never done that before. Not saying it necessarily is a virus (hence the question mark), just confused b/c I see no reason for it and it's new.
