ok im getting annoyed at this AOL computer checkup thing my dad installed when i was infected a long time ago. ive looked through the add and remove programs and its not there. whats annoying me is that it pops up at least 2 times every time on my PC. ive tried ending processes that were labeled with something that would sound like the AOL thing like aolservece.exe but theres another process up or something that keeps bringing it up. the popup is something like this,

---------------------------------------------------------------------l

AOL COMPUTER CHECKUP

--------------------------------------------------------------------l :)

Download, install, and run Whats Running.
Click on Take snapshot in the left pane.
New pop-up window will open.
Click on Save snapshot, and save the file as snap (.xml extension will be added automatically) to know location.

One important question before we disable some services.
Is AOL your ISP, or do you use AOL in any other form except for AIM?

Good.
Go Start>Run, type in:
services.msc
Click OK.

Services window will open.

Find:
AOL Connectivity Service
This service should be stopped already, so right click on it, click Properties, and make sure, Startup type is set to Disable

Find:
AOL TopSpeed Monitor
Right click on it. Stop the service.
Right click again, click Properties, and change Startup type to Disable.

Restart computer.
