I am trying to have my aunt download ad-aware and spybot. But when we try to go to download.com on the aol browser it says web page cannot be displayed. So, I tried it on my computer with aol and the same thing happened. I'm assuming aol prevents from going to this site for some reason. It actually happens when we click on the download button for ad-aware or spybot...not just download.com
So, I told her to go through Internet Explorer(She doesn't have firefox) and when she opens IE up it tries to dial or something. I tried to have her go through tools >>options>>connections but I'm not sure what to do in that section to get it not to dial and just automatically connect. The correct settings seemed to be ticked like "automatically connect". "AOL" is set as the default in the little box where there is also an option to highlight and make "Internet" the default. That doesn't work though, I tried that.
Can someone help me please...basically I just need IE to open and just straight to the home page, not try to dial or whatever.
