Ending Programme message

Recently, on trying to close down I have been getting the message "Ending Programme,AOL.EXE".The programme is not responding, press end now etc.I am using Win XP Pro and discovered recently that I have now got SP2 installed!Any ideas anyone? Peter.

Hi, I don't know about the AOL progam ending etc, but regarding SP2, you seem surprised that you now have it installed - SP2 is ok, I expect you have Automatic Updates (again ok) for XP set,
so it has downloaded and installed without you noticing.

Hi ferrispedro

The AOL.EXE is referring to the AOL dialler, it's a known problem. If you want to get rid of it, stop the dialler from starting, use MSconfig
