I am a novice when it comes to changing my companies web site. I just can;t seem to understand how to change the footer or header sections on the pages.  I use Contribute but dont understand the tool well enough to figure out how to edit what is in the header or footer pages. I can see the GIF that are used in the headers but shouldnt there be some HTML code associcated with those sections.?

I need help.

my Companies web site is "www.clinicalclean.net"

Your HTML code is quite easy to read and the sections are called out through the div id's. see the code below which is from your site.
<div id="header">

	<h1><a href="http://www.clinicalclean.net" title="ClinicalClean">ClinicalClean</a></h1>
	<ul class="navigation" style="margin-bottom: 0;">
				<li><a class="home" href="index.shtml" title="Home">Home</a></li>
				<li><a class="services" href="services.shtml" title="Services">Services</a></li>
				<li><a class="process" href="our-process.shtml" title="Our Process">Our Process</a></li>
				<li><a class="about" href="about.shtml" title="About">About</a></li>

				<li><a class="contact" href="contact.shtml" title="Contact">Contact</a></li>
			</ul>
</div>

<div class="footer-navigation">
				<ul>
					<li><a href="index.shtml" title="Home">Home</a><span>|</span></li>
					<li><a href="services.shtml" title="Services">Services</a><span>|</span></li>

					<li><a href="our-process.shtml" title="Our Process">Our Process</a><span>|</span></li>
					<li><a href="about.shtml" title="About">About</a><span>|</span></li>
					<li><a href="contact.shtml" title="Contact">Contact</a></li>
				</ul>
				Contact Us: <a href="mailto:info@clinicalclean.net">info@clinicalclean.net</a>			</div>

		</div>

May be easy for someone that knows what they are looking at.  When I look at the directory of allt he files that make up the web pages. I am trying to determine what the name of the HTML file is.  Is it Index.html?  or something like that.

most likely that is where you begin looking, but if there may be some scripting language involved that pulls in reusable files for the header and footer. I would image these being called header.something and footer.something

it is likely just a text document, open it up with contribute or notepad or whatever.
