Just wondered why AOL insist on their programme having to be used. Is there a good reason? No other ISP seems to do the same, or at least if they do, you can get round it (as I did with NTL dialup).
I used to have AOL dialup and found that it was slow to load it's progamme with my Celeron 333 PC. Maybe this wouldn't be a problem with a newer PC. The other problem was that I couldn't find a way of getting my emails with Outlook Express, which I thought was a big drawback, so eventually I moved on to another ISP.
