I use webshots only as a store, and don't use their desktop or software. Did you try their FAQ/Help, John?

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.  Sad

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.

Or better yet

Start > Control Panel > Add, Remove Programs > & remove anything to do with Webshots

I've been anti Webshots for years, while on dial-up you couldn't view anything there unless you had a day or two off to let it load, even with a 1.5 mbs connection you need an inordinate amount of time. When a website clicks 4-5 times to load stuff from off site before it will load the content you came for it's obvious they are less interested in providing a service to their customers then they are in advertising dollars.
