First I would work on getting the other site stuff working, like the login thing, it opens like 3 pop up windows. Also some of the text is cut off.

Maybe Ad-Aware...actually I wouldn't add a downloads section. It's just more work for you to add.

What would be the best Method to password protect a part of the website,WITHOUT using PHP?

...you don't even have the password encrypted!?!? Set up .htaccess password protection ASAP, it's not hard:

Yes, as freestyler said, .htaccess is the way to go, if you dont have PHP or ASP.

WOW...that's one ghetto host! Edit the .htaccess file in your root and make it so it shows your own 404 page.
