Is your OS and browser 64-bit?
You write "downloading", but did you also install it?
What exactly means "still no luck"?
sorry for being a little vague
i have ran the uninstalation and then reset the computer
i then followed the links in a nother discussion about os 10.5.8 and downloaded the version flash in the thread and tried to intall, it gets to about 17% and stops and says error and wont install.
i am unsure if it is a 64-bit, how do i find out? sorry
And sorry about my mention of 64-bit; I got momentarily confused by '10_1r102_64' - I thought that was the 64-bit installer. It is not.
This topic gives instructions how to install Flash Player on Mac OS 10.5.8: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/895134

yes that is the thread that i followed to try and install in to begin with and although i am following it to the word it is still saying error
Unfortunately I do not know too much about Mac OS, so you will have to wait until someone with better knowledge picks up your problem.

i just re followed the steps an it got to 47% and failed so ill wait for some extra support thanks
