LOL–that will teach me to surf these forums while eating.
Is there some plugin that actually works?
Don’t assume that just because a plugin doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work at all. That’s really demeaning to those who write plugins and to those of us who help out in these forums.
Remember that it’s not a matter of works/doesn’t work. It’s a matter of works well/works poorly. You need to do your homework:
Search the plugin repository using a variety of keywords. (Searching is as much an art as it is a science.)
Read the description of each plugin to see if it’s actually designed to do what you want. (It’s easy to misread these descriptions if you are in a hurry or inexperienced.)
Read the reviews to see if others have had problems with the plugin.
Use the Google to search for your plugin. Add keywords like “troubleshoot”, “problems”, or “issues” to expand your search.
Select plugins that have a strong revision history behind them. If your current plugin hasn’t been updated in over a year, chances are you will have issues with it before too long.

Most importantly, describe, as accurately as you can, what the issue is. “Not working” could mean anything, and it could be something that is permanently fatal or a relatively easy fix. But without a more accurate description, as well a link to your site, it is impossible to help you.
Don’t forget that themes and plugins listed in the repository are released under a GPL license. Feel free to learn to code in order to improve them and then offer your efforts to the WordPress world.
