At this moment, I'm fluctuating between 5 - 100 % cpu usage, and my pF usage is steady at 330 mb.
I do have a Windows XP SP2 disk, if that would work to attempt a repair.

If it runs the file check then you should back up all the data to be safe before using the CD to run a repair

When I ran sfc /scannow earlier in the week, it did not ask for a disk.

When AOL creeps up then close the browser and re-open it, then check what AOL is up to
Does AOL check your e-mail and other stuff besides browsing
Is the firewall and anti virus part of the package

I use Norton Anti-Virus and McAfee Firewall, not the aol packaged ones. Have been considering using AOL's package ones, or switching, but haven't made any changes in that for over a year, other than the updates.
Ticked off "do not save encrypted pages to disk" cleared temp internet files and cookies, reopened aol. Memory usage for aol was at about 10 k when i reopened it, now, after being logged on for 5 minutes, answering a couple emails, sending a couple invoices, it's up over 40k.

If you got tune up, click the yellow one then click optimize, memory optimizer, manual optimization, set the slider to the right, click clear now, check AOL

But even just sitting idle, like now, it keeps increasing the amount of memory used - I'm on the PC, have the laptop on a different s/n and the memory was at 5K after running tuneup memory optimizer, I haven't done anything on that one at all, and now, about 40 min later, it is up to 35k. Just sitting there, doing nothing.
