Hi. I just got a new computer and I get this error when I shutdown or reboot:

aolservicehost.exe - dll initialization failed

It shuts down normally afterwards but I would like it to stop saying that when I shutdown or reboot. I don't use AOL (have cable), and I don't want to mess my computer up by deleting something I shouldn't. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks.

did aol come with your computer like is it a program pre installed

and its supposed to start when your computer is running

there maybe a few things you can do

you can remove it from your add and remove programsyou can go there by go start...control panel.... click add and remove then click on aol ...click remove

its safe that way


if its a start up service then you try this go start >>click on run>>type in msconfig >>click on start up tab look for AOL ...un check it then click apply ok then restart

the other is >>>>go start>>run>>>type in services.msc >>click ok>>> scroll until you find AOL>>>click on it it should be highlighted>>>look to left of screen then click stop service
