Default New to Blackberry, Help with program!

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, tonight I bought ColorXP from handango.com and I downloaded the zip file to my desktop and I unzipped it to my desktop and I opened the folder and found a pdf file and two folders. One marked 4.2 and 4.3. (I have the verizon blackberry curve 8330) so I opened the folder named 4.3 assuming it was talking about the OS I opened up desktop manager ran the application loader and loaded up the program. I am new to blackberry and I didn't know the device needed to be re booted so I tried to use the program I opened it up and set it to on and the color I wanted and then clicked save now usually when I click save on a program it closes out and returns to the previous screen but when I clicked save on ColorXP it did nothing. So I closed it out and tried sending myself a sms text and it blinked red so I waited and tried it again after about 10 min. Still red so then I did a alt-shift-delete soft re boot and tried to turn the program on and save and do it again but once again it blinked red. So I went into options-advanced options-applications (to remove the program) and it wasn't even in the list! So I reconnected my blackberry to my computer ran the application thing and it automatically had ColorXP to be removed. So I removed it and it reset or re booted itself so then I tried to install what was in folder 4.2 instead but this time re boot right after. Exact same thing, sent myself a text and all I got was a red LED light.... I'm not sure what's wrong or what to do. I do have security (a password) enabled but does that matter?
I'm so confused, what should I do?

1. connect to pc
2. install with desktop manager (4.3 version, obviously)
3. disconnect from pc
4. perform hard reset: remove battery while phone is on and running, wait 30 seconds, reinstall battery
5. make necessary changes to ColorXP settings

New to Blackberry, help with program!

One of these is a duplicate. No need to post the same thing in two different places.
