Did you untick "allow third party ...."?
Yes, I; unticked, "slid left", and deleted everything -- basically used every option of the online tool to try to prevent *.SOL, but no luck.
I'm usually using FireFox on a WINXP machine, (also have every other browser installed too, but daily use is FF).
To the best of my knowledge, there is no way to stop Flash from placing SOL files on your hard-drive.
I hope browser developers address this issue, and Adobe modifies Flash itself to allow people to run Flash without requiring "settings.sol" or other Local Stored Objects at all.
An obvious fix would be;
1). At Flash install, a toxic looking warning screen advises about 3rd parties' nefarious use of SOL files and Flash setup has a "[X] Do not store any local objects." check box, and;
2). If user ckecks off above setting, Flash defaults to common settings without the need of "settings.sol" and no other SOL files are created.
Local Stored Objects are a gaping user privacy / security hole in Adobe Flash.
