AOL has the great ability to totally take over you computer. There are several steps you must do to remove this software from you system.
1. Use the ADD/REMOVE software(I Know you did this)
2. Delete ALL "SpyWare" from your system. Go to the downloads section of www.cnet.com, there you need to do a search for ADAWARE. Download it and install it and run the program.
3. Go to the downloads section of www.cnet.com and download a 30 day trial of "Ace Utilities", and install it. This software will allow you to delete any "mirror" AOL stuff.
4. Once EVERYTHING has been deleted, I would recommend installing a third party defrag program. You may (Suprise) get this from the www.cnet.com download area, by typing a search for a program called "Diskeeper".
I've been trying to get rid of AOL since the begining of December. I canceled my membership with them, that is not the problem. I can't uninstall it off of my computer. I've gone in Add/Remove, AOL is not there. Can somebody help me figure out a way to get rid of the program?
