AOL: I'm not leaving the hard drive!

  blulightning747 21:46 07 May 2004

Hey, can anyone help? I've changed ISPs from AOL 8 to Blueyonder and somehow AOL 8 got damaged and now everytime i try to delete the rest of the contents it tells me Access denied it may be in use by other programs etc. I went onto Task Manager and shutdown most of the non vital programs but to no avail. I'm running XP home, 2.4GHz, 256MB RAM. Can anyone help?

boot in safe mode and remove from there

Or try reinstalling Aol and then try again.

I've installed/uninstalled god knows how many times now, no luck. Cheers hector that sounds like a good idea.

You probably find that AOL is running in msconfig \ startup. That is probably why you are getting the "Access denied it may be in use by other programs "

If safe mode does not cure it, look in msconfig and stop it starting with windows. This should help you get rid of it.
