can anyone explain to a complete novice how i get my broadband. i first bought my pc some years ago with an aol package 9.0 which i installed. i then upgraded to broadband with another aol cd install disc. i have now switched to talk talk and pay my bill to them but everything else is still dominated by aol. it is aol that tries to reconnect if i lose connectivity. i can never get the talk talk icon or homepage to come up even though i request talk talk. aol dialler comes up all the time. every time i try to go to my talk talk account "oops aol has lost the connection" i want to completely uninstall aol but i am worried i still need it to get broadband.i blame aol for all the problems we keep getting with connectivity but do not know how to get rid of it
can someone explain please

First, Uninstall AOL. ( you will still be able to access AOL email online if you still use it)


Second, Disable Autodial (In XP, Autodial is the default)

To disable autodial, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  • If you are using Category View, click Network and Internet Connections.
  • Click Network Connections, and then on the Advanced menu, click Dial-up Preferences.
  • Click the Autodial tab.
  • Click to clear the check boxes that are listed under Enable autodial by location.
  • Click to select the Always ask me before autodialing check box (if not already selected).
  • Click to select the Disable autodial while I am logged on check box.
  • Click OK, and then close the Network Connections dialog box.
The disable autodial is copied from here: Modem Automatically Attempts to Establish a Dial-Up Connection When You Start Your Computer or Start a Program
