I have been trying to change my business name therefore I need to change my web site.
I cannot have more than 1 website with Tripod who I registered with and it wont let me cancel membership either.
Can anyone tell me a FREE web host I could use that will be easy

Debs, I use Freewebs and it's so easy. It's completely FREE although there are some restrictions. You can't have more than 7 pages and you can only use up to 50 images but, hey, what more do you want from a free web host!!!!!

well... this is where it can get kind of dirty.

Brinksters ace because you can get free hosting and they have advanced features (i.e. SQL Server and .NET)
However, for the free version, they dont make it overly easy for newbies to put a site up in 10 minutes.

Essentially, you need to write the html or asp page, save it as default.htm or default.asp and then upload it into your account.

For instance, open up notepad (start->programs-> accessories->notepad)

Type the following in (or paste it in)
[code:1]
<html>
<head>
<title>My freaky page</title>
</head>
<body>
<h1>O MY COW MONGER!</h1>
<hr>
<p>my first page!</p>
</body>
</html>
[/code:1]

click File->save as
type default.htm

then log into your brinkster account, click on file manager, and upload the default.htm file you made.

Herein ends the html lesson ;)

check this link out-> http://www.brinkster.com/Kb/Kb.asp?kb=87539

The thing I dig the most about brinkster is that there is TONS of free code snippets (i.e. hit counters and javascript) that you can get on the site. If you have the time and desire to learn html, asp, or asp.net its a great start. If you dont want to get your hands dirty... its not going to be for you :)
