After completing a reinstall of XP on my eMachine, I went in and removed some things that came with the computer like AOL. I now see it sitting on my desktop, version 8.0.

Something about AOL, I just don't want it. Am I being unrealistic; is it harmless?

Any way to remove it? It is in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\AOL Downloads

Since first using AOL, then leaving about a month later, I found the earlier versions were like a legal virus (could not be removed).I don't know what the newer versions are like, but I keep back from AOL personally...

That's what I'd heard, and is why I am asking. I have version 8; it came with my computer which software I needed to recently re-install. Apparently what we believe is true since the first thing I did was uninstall it. It just won't go away.
