I hope I've posted in the right section.

Using Windows XP, I am booted offline by my ISP (AOL) whenever I click my link to "My MSN Groups". I have no problem with MSN home page or any other link - this is the only link when my ISP boots me offline. What do you think is causing this to happen, and what should I do to rectify the problem?

Calum.

You don't mention what type of internet connection you have i.e. dialup, DSL, cable, etc.

If it is dialup, then connect to the internet. (If you have high speed then you are already connected).

On dailup - minimize the aol software by hitting the minus (-) sign in the upper right corner. (for high speed you can skip this step)

Open Internet Explorer. Log into MSN groups using IE. Do you get kicked off now?

Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't get booted off in IE. I guess it must be a problem with AOL.

You want to use the latest edition of AOL and that would be AOL 9.0 Security Edition. If you are using 9.0 Optimized that would explain why you are having troubles, as it is full of bugs. Of course, all AOL software tends to be buggy.
