put the heating on it will warm up you internet

as above remove the aol software it uses too much resources and is no longer needed if you have a router
firefox or goolgle chrome

AOL are **** end of story esp. if ur on a phoneline connection (BT) all phone line based internet connection is..........anyway i suggest if u think you mite have a virus then download AVG its free security for ur computer and the best about, much better than norton etc. if u have a virus that will sort it. but if its just ur connection then ur screwed unless u can change to a cable connection (virgin or something) plus remove all the stupid aol software as others have suggested, its rubbish and u dont need it, just slows ur computer down more. good luck :)

I got to as far as "i am on aol" before realising there's no way I can help you when you're with A.O.Hell....

I've been with them a couple of times... been through hell and back with them. Never again. And after I left them the final time they continued to dock my bank account with the charge for using them for 18 MONTHS!! And I just couldn't get it stopped no matter what I did. It got that bad I felt like just changing my bank account until I finally got it sorted. They kept trying to tell me via phone and emails and letters etc that I was still logging on and using their service.... Bull****.

I hate useless AOL.

oh and they only refunded the last three months I paid them "as a courtesy... we don't need to be doing this". depsite me paying for about 18 months when I had cancelled them + uninstalled.

I agree i always say aol's favourite saying is "aol is not responding", i have had problems with aol for a week and need a new router which they said "let me just check you are entitled to a new router" I thought the cheeky buggars, so i'm waiting for my new router and borrowing my dad's spare one in the mean time x x x x x
