I am having a problem with installing AOL on my laptop. It had AOL before and it worked fine but I had uninstalled it because we got a High-Speed connection and just didn't need AOL anymore, but my wife hates the Comcast mailbox and wants her precious AOL back. So, I went to the AOL site and downloaded the AOL 9.0 VR and installed it. Everything went fine but when I click on the icon to start up AOL, I get this message:

"AOL will now install the files required for you to connect to the service. Click Yes to install these files. You may be asked to restart your computer; otherwise, you will not be able to connect."

This message pops up as the AOL loading box comes up, the AOL program never opens all the way. So, I uninstalled AOL completely and downloaded from aol.com and tried installing again. I got the same message. I uninstalled and then went to Wal-Mart and picked up an AOL disc and installed the program. Same message. I even used system restore to go back to when AOL worked and the message followed me. It stalked me.

I called AOL Tech twice and had a live chat with an AOL Rep, and they say that it is not installing all the way, try a different disc. But, if that was the case, that would mean both the disc and the website have an incomplete DL available. The problem has to be with me and my laptop.

It is a DELL Inspiron 9300, not even a year old and more then meets the system requirements for AOL 9.0 VR. I have Comcast High Speed and use a Belkin G+MIMO Wireless Router and Network Card. I have run Virus Scans, Spyware Scans repeatedly to see if there is some sort of virus problem. There have been similar problems from others and I have found some sites where people post for help, but nothing is posted back that is helpful.

I have uninstalled AOL Connectivity from the computer, repaired it, went through AOL's one-click-fixes, tried installing with the computer hooked directly into the cable modem sans router, I have tried installing an older version of AOL 9.0 and I get the same problem. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. I am also posting a Hijackthis log to see if it is something there.

Hi Azreal, sorry for the long delay, we're really swamped lately.

I see no signs of malware in your log. I'm afraid your issue is something that HijackThis is not designed to help you with.

If you are still having this problem, please start a new topic in the Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications forum and someone who is familiar with AOL may have some ideas for you. Sorry again you had to wait so long just for someone to tell you this.

The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso
