Ok the first step is to press the "start" button and "R" at the same time which should bring up "run".
If that doesn't work then go to "start", "Accessories" and then click "run".
When the "run" program pops up then type "%appdata%

Next step is to copy your ".minecraft" and paste it where ever you want just in case something wrong happens but i have done this 3 times and nothing bad has happened. Then after you have done that your next step is to delete your ".minecraft" and run the launcher which should update and give you a completely new .minecraft folder.

Step 2: Mod your Minecraft

This is the step where we will be installing the mods.

To install the mods you need:
-An archive program like winrar (can be downloaded from download.cnet.com)
-Modloader (downloaded from minecraftforum.net)
-The mod you want to install (mods can be downloaded from minecraftforum.net or modsforminecraft.com)

First go back to ".minecraft", double click on it and then double click on "bin" and then open "minecraft.jar" with an archive program.
There is a folder called "META-INF" inside "minecraft.jar", you want to delete "META-INF" otherwise modding your minecraft wont work.
Then you open up "modloader" and copy all the files in it and paste it in "minecraft.jar".
Next you open up the mod you want to be installed and do the same thing.
But some mods are different and require some folders to go into other places but if so it should have a "readme" notepad file, just read it and do exactly as it says.

Last thing to do, is to close "minecraft.jar", open your Minecraft launcher, and enjoy! :D

Was wondering the following: My son is an avid Minecraft player and I find it to be a very cool game for kids (and adults who still feel like kids - like me). However, he is dying to download all these crazy 'mods'. I use WOT (Web of Trust) on my computers. It is a great program that warns of websites that present a danger, and almost all sites that offer 'mods' come up as being virus risks. How can I assure we are downloading clean, virus-free mods? Thanks for anyone who has answers.

Instead of cleaning the entire folder, you could just use the "Force Update" option in the launcher.
Good walkthrough. I know I've had a ton of issues with minecraft and mods. It's tricksy.
