Make sure you have the import xxx.yyy.zzz statement at the top of your code

It looks more like the classpath isn't including the directory where your .class files are (for your existing packages).  If they're in a jar, you'll need to include the jar file itself, not just the directory that contains it.

Ok, i got a package Files and a package Browsers, in a file inside of Browsers, i try and use a contructor in the Files package under the class setName.
I try and import using import Files.* to get all of them since i will use them all eventually, but it says "Package Files does not exist" even though it is there.

Do you mean that you have a class defined as:

package Files;

import...

public class setName
{
    .
    .
}

From the naming convention you are using, it looks like you might actually mean:

package ???;

public class Files
{
    public void setName(...)
    {
        .
    }
}

If this is the case, you need to import ???.Files.
