Register for an account with http://www.photobucket.com (it's free)Find the avatar you want. Right click on the avatar and do a save as to a file in your computer. (My Documents/My Pictures/Avatars for example). Log into photobucket. You will be on a page that says upload. Click Browse, find the avatar you want in your computer and double click the picture. Click upload. After it has been uploaded you have 3 options to copy. I copy the image option, then paste it in the line for the avatar.

Everything?

Try this: Google "free avatar". Then go to any avatar site that comes up and find something you like. Copy the location of that avatar into your profile, and you're done. You never actually download the avatar to your profile; it is called from its location each and every time someone looks at a thread containing one of your posts.
