Dead simple - Go to add / remove from control panel and remove all references to it. Reboot the computer and look in C:\program files\online services and delete the relevant AOL files plus any others you don`t want. I normally delete the whole folder!

Lastly remove any desktop icons, (Shift Key and Delete Key at the same time to permanently remove them from the system.)
