Hi!
I've got a problem with safari. It asked me to download adobe flash player to watch videos and such. I downloaded it, installed it, but it keeps asking me to download it again. What's the problem? What am I supposed to do?
Thanks in advance.

P.S. I have restarted the laptop.

The file you downloaded from Adbe is a .dmg (Disk Image). You need to open that up, then run the installer or drag and drop what's inside there to the applications folder.

Did you do that step?

OK - try repairing your hard drive. This guide has three methods - the preferred one is booting up from your Install DVD:
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck

oh God, i am so stupid. i think it doesn't get worse.. i looked into the settings and it turned out that the box where it says something like "turn on plugins" (my laptop's in russian) wasn't ticked.

thanks to everyone who has helped!!
