    Are you uploading them to:
    http://bensputerstore.us/wp-content/themes/

    Some themes have a double folder. Be sure you just have one folder uploaded in your themes directory.

    Ex. http://bensputerstore.us/wp-content/themes/vesuvius

    When on your site, try doing a hard refresh of your browser - Ctrl + F5

    Also if your WP is prior to 2.0.3, you probably have a cache folder - empty the contents of the folder.

    cklick that link, you have NOT uploaded the themes to the correct directory :)

    they need to be in something that will resemble this:
    /your_name/public_html/wp-content/themes/

    Nope I can see you havent got it right yet.

    A screenshot of what you see when you ftp into your site would be helpful..but for the time being..

    heres how it typically looks:

    you ftp and youre in /

    from there you might see:

    www
    public_html
    tmp
    etc
    logs
    ...

    when you cd (change directories) into public_html, you are in whats commonly called your web_root. everything in there is accessable from the web.

    locate your wp-config.php. In that same directory, there out to be a directory (folder) named wp-content, and inside wp-content should be another directory (folder) named themes.

    THATS where your uploaded themes need to be.
