I recently deleted AOL software from my computer. Now when I boot up I get the following message " aoltray.exe - Unable to locate componant" Can somebody help me to get rid of this? It's not really a problem, just annoying! Thanks in advance!

First, check the items in Startup by clicking Start, Run, and typing in MSCONFIG. Go to the Startup tab. Browse the list for anything that says AOL. Uncheck it. Save and Close - you'll need to reboot.

Second, check the Startup folder under Program Files. It there's a shortcut there to AOL, delete it.

Post back with the status after you do these two things.
