Adobe flash player wants to open web content on this computer

I am getting a constant pop up from my internet explorer security window, it pops up continually everytime I change a window. It says adobe wants to open web content on this computer, but it won't allow me to do anything with it. I keep hitting don't allow because I do not know what it is. It won't go away. How can I get this to stop??

Go to, and do the free scan Trend Micro's House Call virus, spyware and malware scanner and cleaner.

If you have anything, remove them. Helpful Free Software below Read On.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

FYI---Virus Protection-- 2 programs of virus protection will conflict with each other and will actually cancel out the protection. SO just download one.

There are alot of $ anti-virus and Internet security programs out there-ie: Norton, McAfee, Panda, Bitdefender. If you would like to pay $ then get ***Kaspersky***-- 2010 , I feel that is the best for your money.

Hi. My wifi internet connection requires online password verification, So i have to open web browser and provide userid and login to start using internet. But my Ps3 browser is not showing the pop up...

The PS3 browser doesn't work so well with that kind of stuff. You generally do all the authentication during the setup with your wirless router.
Try changing your password, using a different brand of routers, or simply change your security type like TSPK-WEP, or plain TSPK

I have been using my PS3 to access the internet and it has being working fine until recently it now wont let me on the internet saying it doesnt have Adobe Flash Player to watch trailers or things like itv...

Try this and if it doesn't work let me know and we will go a different route.

  1. Start your PlayStation 3's web browser. You can do this by navigating to the "Network" category on your PS3's main menu and selecting the "Internet" option.

  2. Point your web browser to a website that uses Flash. YouTube, at, is a good example.
  3. Let the page load. Depending on your Internet connectio, this could take a few seconds.
  4. Click "OK" when the box reading "Install Missing Plugin" appears on screen. As Flash comes pre-installed on the PS3, this will update you to the latest version of Flash. You will know the update is complete when YouTube videos then begin to load.

What is a security key it says unable to connect to the access point.Check that the correct security key has been entered

The security key is the password that protects your internet from other people connecting to your internet connection. To find out what your secuity key is there are three things you can do.
1. Check the back of your router, The security key is usually printed on there.
2. If it is not on the back of your router and are not very good with a pc or laptop contact your internet service provider they can usualy tell you the key.
3. If you are good on a computer and it is connected to the internet connection you want to use, turn it on then once everything is loaded a signal bar should appear in the bottom right hand corner of your screen. left click on that and a pop up box should appear. Right click on the network you use and click on status. Another pop up box should appear with your network settings, Click on the button that says wireless properties. Another pop up box will appear and at the top of the box click security. There should then be your security key but it will be hidden like a password. At the bottom there should be a check box that says show characters, tick that box and your security key should appear.
hope this helps

All I want to do is run the playstation thru my computer. Do I have to connect it to the internet to do that?

not internet but your home network.
i'm not sure you can use your playstation through your computer. but you can access your pictures, music, videos that is stored on your computer from your ps3. if you have the latest version of windows media player it makes it easier.

Using Windows Media Player 11 as the server
Open Windows Media Player 11
From the toolbar, select Library then Media Sharing
Check "Share my media"
On the PS3 - Under Video, Photos or Music, select "Scan for media server"
Go back to the PC, and you should see a pop up showing an unknown device trying to connect.
Allow the device, and everything should work.

I cant get flash player

You can't use flash player on the psp. Meaning you are trying to watch a video while using your psp internet. This is not due to not having flash but not having enough cache memory to see it online so instead it only makes it seem as if you need flash but if you go into the internet settings you can see that it actually has flash and if you want it enabled or not.
