" is requesting permission to store information on your computer."

May 6, 2010 12:34 PM

I believe this may be a virus. At the top of the messege it says Adobe flash player settings. Under that it says Local Storage. Under, it says requested: up to 1MB, currently used 100KB. Then it has 2 boxes to check either Allow or Deny. This pops up every time I turn on aol radio. I click deny, but it keeps coming back! help!

    As long as you keep denying it will probably come back.


    Check the storage settings at ttings_manager.html

    I had this very same problem, here's what I did ... I uninstalled the toolbar link I had for AOL radio ... and then re-opened the AOL radio

    from the main page on AOL and told it to save as a bookmark on the tool bar (I have Firefox) ... poof, the problem is gone ..

    . not really sure what I did but it worked

    I had the same problem and I disabled the AOL toolbars as follows and the problem went away:


    From Internet explorer window click on TOOLS then select MANAGE ADD-ONS then under ADD-ON TYPES the option TOOLBARS and EXTENSIONS should already be selected (if not then select it). In the SHOW: window or box select CURRENTLY LOADED ADD-ONS then in the window on the right select AOL TOOLBAR then select DISABLE (another window will pop up that lists related add-ons that will also be disabled) then click DISABLE.
