Whenever I shutdown my computer I get a box that pops up:

It says:

aolservicehost.exe - dll initialization failed

It shuts down normally afterwards but I want it to stop saying that.

Can you help me please?

Thank you

I read somewhere that the aolservicehost.exe was not necessary to the running of aol. Would you be able to tell me how to get rid of it and if that doesn't work I'll reinstall aol?

Thanks

Click start, search, include hidden and system files, look for the file, delete it, leave it in the recycle bin

If you get access denied, click start, run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up and remove tick from AOL, specifically aolservicehost, if there, click apply, reboot, delete the file

Click start, run, type msconfig then press enter, put the dot in normal start up, click apply then reboot

AOLServiceHost.exe is a part of the AOL connection manager, and assists in automatic dialing. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems
