Look down at the right hand side of your taskbar, there should be an AOL icon. Right click on there and a menu will appear. Somewhere in the menu there will be a choice to stop AOL from starting as soon as it senses that there is a connection that it can use. I would have got the exact route for you but I am no longer on AOL.I looked up this route for my brother-in-law last year as he had the same problem. Hope this helps, cheers
Are you sure that you do not have a programme that seeks an internet connection on startup? If you have this would dial up your ISP on bootup. Have you installed something lately? When did this problem begin?
