:thumbsup: While I was trying to uninstall another program on add/remove programs, I looked for other old programs that needed deleting. I ran across a program I have no idea what it is....
ATT-AACE is something I do not remember ever installing. I am afraid it is some type of malware or something. Anyone ever heard of this? I am afraid to try to delete it until I know exactly what it is. Thank you for any help!

Do you have AT&T internet service? If you do, and you used an install disk to set up your AT&T internet service, the program was most likely automatically installed when you used that disk.

"Sometimes there will be a problem with your DSL and it will redirect you to the ATT site then it will say something along the lines of "fix this" and that program is the one it uses to access and change settings on your computer and modem".

From http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...17154544AAi6kqD.

which I encourage you to read. If you are concerned about infections, you can post in AM I INFECTED forum.

Your choice whether to remove it or not. A lot of ISP's have something similar and can removed without causing problems with your internet connection.

Thanks. It is weird I don't remember this from before. I contacted ATT and they said it was NOT their program. I will look at your link.

Just for my peace of mind I will try and find that forum, and post it there. THANKS!
