no; NOT a norton removal tool this time but trying to remove AOL from a computer (not my own) with win XP SP2 on it ( and a host of other problems being dealt with by log experts)
tried to remove AOL via add remove programs but remnants are stubborn
IS there a tool specifically FOR AOL removal (without ripping out the entire contents of the XP (much as at this point I might wish to));the comp is not mine so I am being 'careful' with any tool I use on it as ,as I will be the one using the tool ,I will be 'responsible' for the resultant mess if it all goes wrong ,refuses to boot or whatever

any offers team?

I had it on a new Desktop and Laptop. First if it's loaded remove from Add Remove then Do a search for Aol, Only delete the Aol that you know is the ISP
You can do the same in Regedit From the Run Box Search in Regedit comes under Edit in the Menu and to go to next you press F3

I THINK PART of the 'problem' is the two profiles on horrid thing; am requesting reduction to ONE profile for ease of working on it;

In add/remove uninstall"aol you've got pictures" if it's there. Next use AOL uninstaller (choose which products to remove) and uninstall all. Uninstall AOL coach version. Next uninstall AOL.uk. If you have more than one version then uninstall one at a time and reboot as instructed. Uninstall AOL registration if there.

Start, run,search, ensure all hidden files and folders is ticked then type AOL. Delete all. Some will say unable to delete..etc but will on reboot.
Use search again to check and if clear run a reg. fix. AOL then uninstalled.

You need to take care when doing a search as aol may come as part of a word or file. Do not delete unless you are sure they are for Aol isp

this comp shares two profiles; I am requesting it reduced to only ONE as I noticed when doing the removal on ONE profile it told me there was stuff being used; when I opened the second profile ( and got zapped by a virus)I noticed prograsm on IT; so it needs only ONE profile on it for an attempt to remove AOL
