When I downloaded SP2 it stopped my AOL from connecting so I uninstalled SP2 and AOL worked fine. I checked with AOL and they directed me to one of there sites and it said download the AOL SP2 Connection Patcher so I clicked it and it said SP2 was not found on my system. The big problem is how do I download the patcher if I can't connect to AOL.

Howdy:

Can you not just download the patch and save it to your hddd.. Then, upgrade to SP2 and then run the patch from your system itself?? :tazz:

When you say aol stopped connection, what do you mean? Does it still dial and the AOL browser does not work, or does it fail to dial

I wonder if it is probably an Activex componant that installs while online?

My thought was to connect with AOL dialer, minimize aol browser, and download with IE....

OK to download the file you have to be connected to AOL and you have to be running there Client you can't connect through AOL Dialler.
When you try to download it it says SP2 was not detected on your system and just does nothing after that.
When service pack 2 is installed you can't conect to AOL at all ( I am using Broadband) :tazz:

Just as an addendum to gerry's post, did you contact AOL and ask them just how an XP user is supposed to do it??
