How do I change my flash settings? I said I wanted to be prompted about flash wanting to store things on my computer but the prompts are too frequent and annoying!

Chosen solution

New versions of Flash have a panel installed on your system for control of settings.

In Windows XP, Windows Start > Settings > Control Panel > Flash Player, click on each tab and change the "Ask..." setting. Most likely your prompts are coming from the "Storage" tab. Using any of the "Block..." settings may make Flash inoperative on some sites.

The Adobe Flash settings are fairly buried, though supposedly in newer versions it's getting better. You can get at them via their website: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager.html
