For the past month, when I log on, a screen ask whether I want to run aolopt.exe. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

Please go here

Run all the programmes as advised then post a current Hijack This log to the malware forum

Hijack This will produce a log of certain activities on your PC and this information will help a malware specialist identify the issues so he can recommend the best way of removing them

Really :tazz: Actually, I had a death in the family I'm just getting back to things.

I can run the test, but I think it's something that is ok...just wondered if anyone knew what it was.

I should menthion that I run ad-aware se and spybot daily and it doesn't bring up the aol opt.

My condolences for your bereavement

You need to remove it as it is defined as malware
