I have a compaque computer with AOL on it. I am trying to reomove itcompletely :tazz: . After deleting it , it reappears again and again. All AOL files regenerate. I have XP on the computer. Any suggestiions will be appreciated. Tried to search for answers but the search engine does not like AOL in the search string.
