I've recently purchased a brand new Dell 8300 pc with Windows XP Pro installed. I installed AOL 8.0 and BT Voyager 100 broadband software. When I try to close AOL after use it hangs up and then says "program not responding" When I close the PC down it then hangs up on the Saving Settings screen. Someone else I know had the same problem with XP Home.
I had similar problem with AOL 8.0, Win 98SE, and BT Voyager. It would get as far as the voice saying "Goodbye", but then I had to Ctrl-Alt-Del and End Task to get rid of the AOL sign-on screen. Upgrading to AOL 9.0 has solved the problem.
