This is good for 30 days, run disc clean up then registry clean up then go to optimize and run reg defrag, takes a few minutes and needs reboot, then if you locate anything AOL you can use shredder, though do make sure you get the correct file

Ok, have done everything up to the shredder and when finding America Online 8.0 a trillion files open up...how do I know which one to open to shred the holy livin' s**t out of it? There are file folders and a lot of .dlls, etc. There are also other AOL-type files there, too (i.e. AOL Companion, AIM Toolbar) separate.

If it was me, and I'm glad it isn't, I would go for the AOL definites, Companion, Toolbar, then in theory, registry clean up should say all the .dll bits apply to programmes no longer installed
