I am using a computer that used to have AOL as the ISP. Help... I can't seem to get all the old AOL junk off and it is interfering with the smooth function of downloads and surfing with the new ISP. AOL is awful! What do I do?

You will have to remove AOL through Add/remove programs and then I would suggest you run a program to clean the registry. I like Ccleaner for that. It will remove any orphaned registry entries. When you run Ccleaner, go to the Issues tab and scan for issues. Click fix selected issues and create the backup when prompted.
