I know that some people have a problem with AOL, but I use it and get along fine with the Program.
This last Sunday I found it necessary to remove the program from my PC, prior to a new and fresh install. (Testing purpose)
I went into Add/remove progs. and removed AOL from there, I then did a search of my hard drive and all files, even IE6, but I could not find a single trace of AOL left on my system.
Either they hide it very well, or I don't know where to look. J.
