Just a guess really but do you have a firewall installed? If so check to see if it is set to block IE and AOL. Have you updated IE or AOL recently? If so try rolling back to an older version to see if this helps. Hopefully others might have some suggestions also.

wow... Thanks Clark - i had a similar problem and you have just solved it. I've tried everything except the obvious! I feel more than alittle foolish.

Thanks again,
