Please tell me what I should do about these files, as I have Uninstalled AOL, the only file remaining in Add/Remove is the AOL Uninstaller.

Hi JOVE

You may find help here http://anti-aol.livejournal.com/

What happens when you click on the uninstaller in Add/Remove?

When clicking on AOIL Uninstaller to remove, it ask me to choose from searching for AOL version, of which there are none, however the AOL Uninstaller remains.

I will check out the site you have provided.

Thank you.

I admit that I gave up double clicking items and started deleting a few of them were deleted,
quite a few of them went to the Recycle bin, but did not disappear from the file,
(the listing remained), many were unable to delete, but almost all stayed listed in the search result file.

Thanks,

Jove

I had the same problem that you did until a few minutes ago. I went to control panel -> uninstall programs, and clicked on the Aol uninstaller and searched for versions of Aol. It found Aol 9.0, the only version I had ever installed, and I uninstalled it. During the uninstallation, I was given the choice of keeping certain files by checking the boxes next to them, and they were already prechecked, so I unchecked them all. Then I rebooted my comp. After my comp came back on, I went to control panel -> uninstall programs, and the Aol uninstaller was gone.
