I only find office 2003 SP 2 nothing specifically for Frontpage?
that's correct, it will be for Office 2003.  It should have service pack 3 for this.  Once you install SP2, then install SP3.

but I have office 2007??
That's okay.  FrontPage was in the Office 2003 genre.  Get SP2, then SP3.  That might fix your issue.  I am running the same setup you are and mine works with no issues at all.

I have tried everything maybe frontpage just will not work with either windows 7 for a 64bit operatings system Get messages not enough memory but come on I have 8gb
I have it running on 64Bit Windows 7 as well, with no problems.  You might want to try this:

Windows 7 has an XP mode.  Try to run FrontPage 2003 in the XP virtual mode.  You will need to download the VM machine from here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

Try this, and let me know.

are there no patches for frontpage or options that I should be setting.

insert picture select window does not stay up
save as window does not stay up either
No, to my knowledge there are no options.  It seems that it must be a conflict in your system.  You can try to boot into safe mode, and then try to run FronPage.  If that works, then it is a system conflict.
