:tazz: I figured this would be the place to find a solution.

PROBLEM 1: I can't download the AIM installer from aim.com, or anything for that matter . it doesn't give me an error message or anything, but when it brings up the download prompt, which kinda looks like this

Would you like to open this file or save it to your computer?

|Open| |Save| |Cancel| |More Info|

[x] Always ask this before opening this kind of file

so aside from my crude immitation, my problem is that when i click save, nothing happens. i click it again, still nothing happens. i click it a few more times, maybe throw something across the room out of anger, and nothing happens. the window doesn't go away, and i cant download what i wanna. its lame as [bleep]. now your solution may be to "Uncheck the little box next to 'Always ask this...' ", well that particular part happens to be in grey, meaning i cant do a thing to it.

PROBLEM 2: my right click is pretty much useless on any webpage for some reason. i click and click and click and nothing happens. its.....frustrating. usually it will bring up the little menu that has options like "copy", "paste", "save", "save target as", etc....but now....it wont.

PROBLEM 2.4: http://www.bloodhoun...com/index2.html
that particular page won't display anything other than the header and side menu, it used to though.

HMM...COULD THAT BE IT?: Last night, due to despiration...or maybe just plain lack of effort, i decided to format my harddrive as a last resort to getting rid of a rather pesky virus. this deleted all my files, reset all my [bleep], etc. you know, the usual stuff that goes along with formatting.

OTHER DETAILS: please, not a huge technical answer, if any answer at all put it in instructional form if you wouldn't mind. big words scare me. if you'd prefer it, you could pm me instead of posting a reply

For gods sake....nah, for my sake. gimmie some help here.
