AOL Shutting Down

I was recently doing a long download and during the download AOL shutdown fairly often. I was on my daughter's computer, HP celeron, Win XP, AOL 6.0 and a dialup connection.
Could the shutdowns be caused by the dialup connection, AOL or the computer ?
Thanks for your help,

Your AOL version is quite old. Get the newest (9.0) and see if that fixes the issue. The disc is free at any major retail store (like circuit city.)

I have the same thoughts. Will install AOL 9.0 when time permits.
