Basically to cut a long story short I tried downloading flash player again and it gets to 47% then says 'unreliable source' at first I thought it was just adobe, However I later found out that it was not adobe. In fact it is my computer that just will not download anything at all. Either the same message comes up or something similar such as corrupt source/data or even the progress bar will just freeze and nothing will happen. Also I have tried different browsers and the same thing happens. I have made sure my security settings are correct and everything seems to be in order. I have even removed some programs that could be contributing and blocking my downloads but after many days and much frustration I am still left with this problem and I can not seem to find anything on the internet. So if anyone could help I would be very appreciative and I am happy to give who ever more information if they require it.

data errors could be a bad net card loosing packets or a stick of bad ram that damaging the file. run memtest to see if your ram is fine. if you can try slowing down your download speed to see if packet loss gets less. run a packet sniffer to see if your losing any.

uninstall the network chipset driver then install the newest one. may be a damaged driver. if not try a packet sniffer to see if the ethernet port went bad.
