Dear Washek,

unfortunately none will be able to help you with your problem unless you
give a detailed explanation of the problem you encounter. LaTeX is quite a
complex system and thus your input may generate quite different errors.

The best you can do is to create a MWE, a minimal working example (see
http://www.minimalbeispiel.de/mini-en.html), that shows the error or
problem. In most cases you will find the bug yourself when creating the
example file.

TeX Live 2009 is also completely outdated, the current version is TeX Live
2012. If the problem you encounter is indeed caused by an error in a
stylefile there is a good chance that it has been fixed in later versions.
So please consider upgrading your TeX Live installation. :-)
