What AOL spyware?
AOL doesn't usually provide spyware, but it may provide anti-virus and anti-spyware on any systems where the user has subscribed to AOL.
If this is an anti-spyware program running in the background, you can check under the Processes tab of the Task Manager, (right click the Task Bar, select Task Manager), and then use Google to check any process you suspect is AOL.
Then if it is a startup program, you can go to Start > Run, type in ''msconfig'', (without the quotes), click OK, and on the Startup tab, remove the tick for the startup program associated with it.
I hope this helps.
