Dont use the AOL (providing you are on AOL DSL)
1. Uninstall your current AOL BB software.

2. Go into - device manager>network adaptors and uninstall your WAN adaptor.

3. Un-install your ADSL modem from your programs list.

4a. Reboot with your modem unplugged b. Install modem drivers c. Plug in modem when asked let it install the modem

5. Go into - control panel>Network connections>Double click on BT voyager, enter your [email protected] and password (note it must be shorter than 8 charactors)

6.Connect and Bingo no more AOL browser

For email use keyword: IMAP (before you uninstall) and if you use a router you can have the AOL software on and just ignore it, just open your browser of choice.

If you are a dial up user AOL9 supports connecting AOL with out the software so become a beta tester for AOL 9
