    Also you can hit start and go into start up folder and just delete it from there. this will stop it from loading on startup. the it will only start when you ask it to. Hope this was more helpful feel free to contact me.

Can't open Internet Explorer...says "connecting"


You can do several thing to fix this.

In AOL 9.0, right click the AOL icon in the taskbar at the right hand corner of near the clock, then click on System Information. When it opens...it takes a few seconds...click on the Utilities tab at the top of the page. Click on the Quick Restore button at the bottom of the page. Click on Procedd, then follow any on-screen instructions after that.

If you donot have the AOL tray icon, click on Start, Programs and look for America Online (no version number next to it). Click on AOL System Information in the sub-menu.

In versions of AOL before 9.0:
Go to My Computer
Double-click the C: drive
Double-click on Program Files
Double-click on America Online X.0

((Note): If you have several installations of AOL, open the latest installation file, i.e., 8.0, 8.0a, etc. 8.0a if the latest installation.)

Doulbe-click on the Backup folder
Right-click on main (or main.idx)
Left-click on COPY
Click the BACK arrow in the upper left hand corner of the window
Right-click on the IDB folder
Left-click on PASTE
Answer YES to the question.
After that is done,
scroll down on the page and fine the COMPVER file.
Right-click on it, then left-click on DELETE.
Answer YES to send it to the Recycle Bin.
Restart AOL

If the above two procedures donot work, uninstall all AOL from the computer, then reinstall it.

I go onto pogo and aol pops up every time i click something


You have your default connection set to aol, depending on the internet explorer version you are using you can go to Tools > Internet Options, Click on the 'Connections' tab and remove the AOL connection from your default connections, if you have LAN or cable internet you can select Setup Connection and follow the prompts to set up your permanent connection that way you don't get those AOL messages anymore.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!

AOL broadband connection


The answer is very simple ... Uninstall the AOL browser, you do not need it to connect to the internet, AOL's browser, as I have discovered chokes your bandwidth and slows down your PC. I would strongly recommend using something like Firefox (you can add the AOL toolbar if needed). I removed AOL's browser over a year ago and have not had a single problem, bespite the fact that AOL insist I must have it installed on my PC ... Absolute rubbish.

My first computer, just learning. I keep getting (Internet Explorer cannot display the web page). I was able to print the screen I was on but, now the One Note screen keeps comming up and I cant print....


if you are using windows,restore the system back to before you installed AOL,you can do this by
  • go to start button/all programs/acceseries/ system tools/system restore.
  • ensure "restore my computer to an earlier time" is selected,if not click on it
  • press next
  • you will have the opportunity to select what month & day to restore back to (only the bolded dates are available)
  • press next
  • and it will do what ever it needs to do.
  • it will reboot itself
  • should finish saying it was successfullly restored,if not
  • pick another date ,and do the same as above
  • then try again with Volexprees.
hope this helps you
