okay, thank you. I can check on this for you with a Secure Remote Screen Connect Session.

Do you have TeamViewer installed on the computer?

To find the OS you can right click on the Apple at the top of your screen and then choose about this Mac.

does the Blocked Plug In tell you which app is being blocked?

It is usually an update, like Flash, iPhoto, etc... that Safari blocks the plug in update for.
