look in program files for AOL Companion folder and delete it. It's a separate program from the rest of the AOL software.Run Ccleaner click here under issues and delete everything it finds.

You cannot delete AOL Companion asit's built in to AOL but you can stop it appearing. Click on settings and click on exit a window will appear asking if you want to exit make sure that the Automatic Companion is cleared.
