That's AOL for you.
Have you tried AOL support.
Or block popups? Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Privacy tab > select "Block pop-ups > Apply > OK.
Hope this helps.
I have AOL 5.1 and do not want to upgrade or remove it. For the longest time a popup comes up asking to upgrade. There is no "no" button. If I choose upgrade nothing happens. I tried Spybot, TrendMicro, Lavasoft, Microsoft spyware removal and it won't die. I googled and cannot find anyone else having this issue.
How can I permanently get rid of it?
