Sure. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries. And you won't have to update the card reader when you update your computer or get a new camera.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.
This may sound silly, but you did put KNOWN good new batteries in? I have had several problems with my 4345 and they are all battery related. My theory is that when the camera is first turned on there is a lot of juice drawn from the batteries (electronics, lens cover). Unless you use really topgrade batteries (=expensive) they just can't supply the peak current. The bargain 8 for a quid packs are very variable - some are fine, others give up the ghost within minutes :-(
About the only good news is that "old" batteries, discarded from the camera, go on to provide good service in radios, clocks, CD players etc.!
i have had the same problem too, have you got ALL the equipment still in a box, because if so (if you have had the camera less than a year) u can report to the vivitar contact thing because that's what i had to do write back
