When I try to connect to the web from webshots I receive the message that the file may not be supported by aol. Then asks if I would like to open it as a text file, but says then it is too large. As they say in the inner city "Whattup?"

Thanks for your reply, however, after following all the steps you suggested I have the same problem. I failed to say that I'm using Win98SE and I've had aol and webshots for awhile. I recently changed some startup settings after which this started. All other web connections seem to be fine.

I thought all I was doing was eliminating some items on startup. Since then I believe I have put everything back in startup that was there before, but apparently something's still goofy.

I couldnt say if this is the problem or not, but, AOL has a problem with some applications. After connecting, minimize AOL and open Internet Explorer and try the site again.
