It's hard to tell without knowing which TeX distribution you're using. –  egreg May 21 '12 at 14:30
There's some pretty explicit answers here: How do I update my TeX distribution. –  Alan Munn May 21 '12 at 14:52
Consider updating your distribution from MiKTeX 2.8 to MiKTeX 2.9. –  Werner May 21 '12 at 15:02
The best thing you can do is to fully install MiKTeX version 2.9 or TeX Live. –  egreg May 21 '12 at 15:03

I gather you use MiKTeX 2.8. (Aside: you should really consider updating your MiKTeX distribution to version 2.9!) To manually install packages -- rather than rely on MikTeX's built-in autoloader process -- bring up the "MikTeX Package Manager" program (under "All Programs -> MikTeX -> Maintenance"), search for and highlight (by clicking on) the lines that say "sectsty" and "titlesec", respectively, and click on the "+" (Plus) button. After a few minutes, the packages should be ready for you to work with.

Of course, this method requires you to have a connection to the Internet where your computer is not located behind some firewall. If you are behind some firewall, though, you may be out of luck until and unless you can get connected to the Internet differently.
