It sounds like you might be afflicted by some "flash cookies" (also and correctly known as "LSO"s -- Local Shared Objects). These little nasties are cookies but they're not stored with the other, usual cookies. Deleting cookies in the normal way won't remove them.
A fast way to get rid of them and end this problem you're having is to download and run CCleaner -- a nice little piece of freeware that cleans out rubbish from your computer. Adobe (and its cookies) are one of the things it cleans by default.
You can get CCleaner either from the makers (piriform) or any of a number of reliable download sites like FileHippo, Download (dot) com, MajorGeeks and so on. Excellent product and worth having. I use it daily.
I can pretty well guarantee that after you've run CCleaner to clean your computer, your current, annoying problem will disappear.
EDIT to ADD: by the way, I've sent you a U2U with more info about LSOs, etc, so please check your messages.
