When you get around your desktop, let us know and we will try to help you further.
Thanks, I will.
ishkey, this is what I my file folder looks like and below is what it looks like open.
It took me awhile to figure out which program you are trying to use (you typing the name would have been easier) then I saw the pencil graphic and free editor in the 3 pic you posted. Suffice to say that program is not what you need but good for other things.
Based on what you have written so far I think we can agree on that you are a novice at programing and have no love for those who do. Learning HTML, CSS and graphic manipulation takes time. So I will layout a few choices for you.
If you want to manipulate the code of this or any other template and learn some coding you could try to use
CoffeeCup Free HTML Editor it's on their website, it will also handle the CSS part. http://www.coffeecup.com/free-editor/
Another good free one would be KompoZer (a little older but still good) http://kompozer.net/
Both allow you to see the code and the finished product villa split screen (see your changes as they are being made)
For the Graphics you can use Paint.NET (a download) or a web base Pixla.com both easy and full of features & Free.
If coding makes you pull your hair out then you can look at so called Website Design Software's. These require no knowledge on your part. It's like using a drawing program. Design what you want and the code is generated in the background. Though the code will not look like your typical HTML. For small sites they work well but sites can only be edited with the software if you need to make changes.

http://www.avanquest.com/USA/softwa...at=design&sub=web-design&cc=TTR-WE10&netid=CJ WebEasy Professional 10 @ $37.46 with a coupon included. (a good one)
Website Builders - this is where you register at there site, pick out a template, add you picks, your text and you are up and running. There are many out there. Here is comparison of some http://goo.gl/2QRV5s
Finally dare I say find someone you like an pay them. (I know bad direction)
Hope this helps you down the path. Just remember which ever you pick, it does take some concentration and time.
I have used or tried all the software listed here with great success.
Good luck and let us know how it goes.
(In all my years of web design - I have never been compared to the dentist)
Thanks so much ishkey, I really appreciate all your assistance. Well, I did tell you that it was called free editor, but you asked me for the name and I started questioning myself of the name since I wasnt at my computer. That's why I sent you those screen shots. You are right I am a novice, but wrong about not having any love for people who do. I just like for people to follow through on their word. I'm not the only person who has had issues with people who design websites. I'm not asking them to do it for free, I pay, but they just don't complete the project. I'm willing to learn, and excited to try all that you have shown me. Thanks so much.
