Have been using Aol Broadband for some time now,because of this I disabled the modem.All has been ok till recently.Now, when I try to close down my pc, aoldial.exe is still running and will not shut down,and it is taking 5 or 6 attempts to get the pc to turn off.This has been a problem on and off for a while now,but it is getting silly now,can I delete this little program or not?

Have a look here click here

Near the bottom of the page is a paragraph titled PROGRAMS HANG / BECOME UNRESPONSIVE. This includes a suggestion "If Windows is hanging because it can’t force a program to terminate, one solution is to disable the automatic end task logic . Use this registry patch to force that setting change."

Will this patch automatically cure my problem,and stop aoldial.exe from running,coz I don't understand what it will actually do

Similar program to this is Startup Inspector,which I have and according to the program aoldial is already turned off.
