This is the first time I have ever used an OS other then windows, and I have seem to run in to a problem. When I tried to add firestarter it froze up and then when I tried to run the program I get the error thats shown in the attachment. I cant remove the program as well because of a different error which is the second attachment.

On a side note how do you put images on the thread?

Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and give the following

sudo dpkg --configure -a
it will ask you for a password, give yours.

Afterwards, try to run Add/Remove again, it should be working now.
