in the last 2 months or so webshots has gone way over the line for an acceptable level of advertising on their website, it's insipid.
sorry guys but those of you who post pics on webshots, no longer will i visit their site to view your photoss.
as for fixing your problem, have you tried going to START > All Programs > Startup then clearing out anything in that menu related to webshots?
if that doesn't help you can go START > Run, then type in MSCONFIG then hit enter, when the box pops up move over to the startup tab and uncheck anything in there which looks like webshots.
that is, if you're on windows. if you're on mac, maybe a "mac genius" could help.
