I was having a problem with my AOL so I uninstalled the 9.0 software. Now I'm trying to reload and get 16 bit error message "the system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and MS Windows applications" Any ideas?

Do you know it is a good installation disk?

Microsoft suggests it may be a problem if certain files are missing or damaged

they list some work arounds here


It might be easier to try a different AOL disk, this shouldn't be too difficult, and see if that solves the problem.
