Hi, Since upgrading to AOL 9.6, I am no longer able to just start Internet explorer without already being signed into AOL. Once on Aol I then can got to Internet Explorer and use it and get whatever information and email I may have. Can someone tell me how to fix this problem.

I feel like AOL has taken over my computer and telling me how to run my business.

I use AOL 9.6 and also use the default Internet Explorer 9.0 from Microsoft.

Did you by any chance allow AOL to be your default search provider and allow AOL to install their version of Internet Explorer?

Try uninstalling AOL 9.6 and if any thing just allow it to be your default email provider and leave the other options unchecked and see how it goes from there. This means do not install any tool bars as well.
