And someone explain how my armor rating goes up when l remove armour and run around in a long robe?
I assume you have the "unarmored" skill?
If so, you are better defended when *not* wearing armour.  Your character is not skilled in armour, and so is more likely to take damage when wearing armor, as the armour impedes their movements and leads them to take more damage. 
Wear a robe, and you'll be fine.
There's bug in the game which means you need to wear at least one piece of armor to get full benefit from unarmored skill - this bug, and dozens of others, is fixed with the Morrowind Code Patch - available from http://morrowind.nexusmods.com/mods/19510.

I don't have the internet at home... but the game did install what I think may be a patch program onto the PC (Using a swiss army knife icon.) not sure how to.... use it...

The swiss army knife icon is the "Morrowind Construction Set".

This is the program which allows you to make mods!

The official patches aren't installed automatically (unless you have the Steam version).

If you installed from disc, you probably need to download and install the official patch from Bethesda - http://support.bethsoft.com/patches.php - scroll to the bottom and choose the version of Morrowind that you have.

Once you have the official patch you should also get the unofficial Morrowind Code Patch I linked to in my earlier post, and also the Unofficial Morrowind Patch Project from http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Tes3Mod:MPP

If you find it difficult to download these (as you don't have internet at home), I'm happy to download them for you - if you want to send me a PM I can put them on a disc and send them in the post (and any other mods you might want).

Which canton are you on at the moment?  I'll boot up Morrowind and see if I can give you step-by-step directions.

I am still in Vicee, currently in the library of the Hall of Wisdom. I am trying to steal a Book for Casius the something of truth. A banned and therefore expensive book that I can't find anywhere else or afford to buy.
I took an invisibly potion first as I only have a sneak of 9 and I don't even know how to activate it anyway and I STILL GOT CAUGHT....

So how can I take it without being caught? I have a 4 point reputation to protect....

 :lol:

Chameleon improves sneak skill

Invisibility makes you invisible - but taking any action, opening doors or taking things for example, will render you visible once more.

Well you can walk past most people and instantly stop aggro if you turn invisible.

And sneak works by crouching and moving out of sight. The higher your skill the less likely you will be rumbled - and the more you can swipe stuff without being caught redhanded.

Did you not get a manual with your copy of the game?
http://cdn.steampowered.com/Manuals/22320/mwgoty_pcmanual.pdf?t=1342228509
It's well worth a read - it covers the controls, as well as some of your earlier queries, like how to use scrolls/spells and how armour rating works.
I'd strongly suggest taking the time to sit down and read through the manual.

Might explain why my spell list/ magic items panel has disappeared perminantly from the bottom right hand corner.... ANNOYING and dangerous.

You've turned off a bit of the HUD by mistake.

And it's always ctrl. Except when its a poorly optimised console conversion

In that case, make sure you bookmark the link I posted above to the manual.  You'll find it invaluable - and should make things a lot easier, for example...

...see page 7 of the manual for info on the HUD.
