I'm trying to install AJAX and trying to get the .dll into the newly created Ajax Toolkit tab on the toolbar, but it seems to do nothing... I've looked at several tutorials, tried NuGet... nothing works... done this before on another machne with no porblems...
I'm running Win7 and VS 2010 Pro.

To add to the Toolbox, you need to create a new tab by right-clicking within the Toolbox. After creating the new tab, called "AJAX Control Toolkit", right-click again and select Choose Items.... This will bring up a dialog that will allow for you to browse
to where you have the Toolkit DLL. When you add this to the dialog, all of the existing controls should show up highlighted and marked. Click OK in the dialog and the new controls will be added to your Toolbox. Note that you will need have an ASPX file
open when doing this.

I did the above and looked at other posts. I tried NOT dragging the .dll and simply choose the option from my tab called "Choose Items" - got the tools but they are grayed-out I'm running 4.0 framework and downloaded the 4.0 Ajax but still grayed out. I
have an aspx page open of course. Made sure .dll was unlocked before using it. Restarted VS and Windows, still all AJAX tools grayed out.

Make sure you install the correct version of the AjaxControlToolkit:
Version 3.0.20229 2008-02-29 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit targets the official release of .NET Framework 3.5 and Visual Studio 2008.
Version 1.0.20229 You can also download the Toolkit for .NET Framework 2.0, ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 and Visual Studio 2005.
April 12, 2010 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit for ASP.NET 3.5 Service Pack 1 and Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
Nov 16 2011 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit for ASP.NET 4.0 and Visual Studio 2010
September 2012 release of the AJAX Control Toolkit for ASP.NET 4.5 and Visual Studio 2012
Then you could add the Ajax Control Toolkit to the VS Toolbox step by step at:http://www.asp.net/ajaxlibrary/act.ashx

I tried to get Nuget to run and it failed also. Is there no way to un-gray the tools I already see listed?

You could delete the ajaxcontrol toolkit toolbox. And then add that again via nuget or manually.
