Looking for some “superheroes/fairies” Adobe Photoshop 7.0 brushes?

Does anyone know some good website that will allow you to download some brushes for Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for free? I already have some websites, but I am looking for some superheroic brushes, or some fairy brushes. If anyone knows any good, virus-free, websites, that would be a good help.

Adobe Photoshop 7 will not use any other tool but the hand tool?

I tried switching to the brush tool, and then the pen tool, and tried every other tool. It will show that I am on that selected tool, but the hand shows up and it’s all I can use.
I didn’t install anything new, and I tried closing out and opening the program again. I did that twice.
Is there anything I can do?

PS It’s NOT elements. It is Adobe Photoshop 7.
We can’t afford to buy or update…
