    Every single time I sign on through Windows 98 and AOL 7.0 two very annoying screens come on at least once but sometimes even more than once: first: Publish your Files on the Web and then are you sure about publishing on Web Publishing Wizard.

    AOL told me that this has nothing to do with them and to call Microsoft. Microsoft says call AOL.

    For expersts this i probably a very minor problem. Please help how exactly I eliminate these?

    In the Add/Remove Programs control panel look for this web Publishing Program; highlight and click the Remove button or, in that same Add/Remove Programs, Click the Windows Setup tab; Look inside all the entries there; uncheck and click the Apply button and click the Ok button for the appropriate entry.

    Styxx-thank you for your posting. After I followed it, the Web publishing Wizard was succesfully removed from the Programs. however, the exact same thing pops up every time I start up the computer?????????

    if it's still in your start up somehow

    start
    run
    msconfig
    click on the rightmost tab - startup

    scroll down and see if web pub wiz is listed
    - if so, uncheck it
    - apply
    - ok

    you'll need to reboot
