First a moderative hint: you should open a separate thread for different problems, as this will it make easier to search for a specific problem for the future user with a similar (or even the same) problem. Thanks for your consideration.

From what you describe your terminal type is definitely at fault. Either your putty is not configured to act like a vt100 terminal (don't know putty all too well, being blessed with a Unix system to work on) or your termcap database entries for the vt100 are crap. As you said the system is a freshly installed AIX system i suppose the former to be the case.

To make sure the usual terminal definitions are correctly installed issue the following command. Output should be more or less the same as mine (taken from an AIX 5.3 system at ML 09):
