Hi all,

I'm new to this site, and not too knowledgable, but I'm sure some one out there can help.

I run windows XP, and currently my desktop is showing an image that has come from a website I set up hosted by Webs.com. This is over riding my preferred background, which I can still see the edges of behind my Internet Explorer home page.


I must say that the website has been trouble free and extremely easy to operate since I started it over two years ago, but recently I found that I couldn't upload images properly. The images would upload but were far too large for the page, and I could not resize them as I had in the past. I intend to go through the Webs support to sort this out, but my concern now is that the images I had on my pages have disappeared, and been replaced with the message" Oops, Image not found. Webs provides your image hosting  www.webs.com. This is what shows on my screen when I close all tabs


Somehow, in my attempts to upload and resize my images I have caused this.


Everyone I have asked about this is baffled. Help please!

i don't know...but I suggest contacting your current web host for assistance.


I see several reports of this happening but no solution per se.

Thanks Louis. I've tried doing this, but no response so far. Strangely the website problem seems to have resolved itself in that I can again upload and resize my images, but the desktop problem has not gone away.
