    On sites such as Google and the Flash Player download site, the computer is being recognized as a Linux machine, therefore, it only gives me the Linux version of the program I need to download.

    I have NEVER had ANY version of Linux on this computer, only OSX.
    Currently: 10.6.8

    I dual boot windows, but on a seperate partition.

    What sites?

    Linux and Mac are based on Unix, so thats probably what its referring to.
