Problems with dialup

  Chegs ® 09:54 14 Mar 05

I have AOL as my ISP,up until Fri it worked fine,but since Fri night,my connection drops every 15 minutes,unless I'm using AOL browser.I usually use "Avant" or IE,but its impossible to d/l using them.I tried using AOL browser last night and was able to d/l AOL 9 without any problem.

Its only started happening after running anti-spyware apps,I hoped that reinstalling AOL software might have helped but it hasn't.

The problem appears to be AOL software isn't recognising data thru-put from IE/Avant,and thinking the connection is idle,disconnects.

I have tried to cfg the "Dialup Networking" to connect to ISP,but continually get "Incorrect Username or Password" so I have to use the AOL software.

aol is a very intrusive program. its like a cant get rid of it! i must admit i hate aol. i have a 2.2mb connection
but maybe u have knocked out some vital files used by aol in the process. aol it very nosy. try uninstalling it and reinstalling it.

I agree AOL is a pain,stuffing files everywhere thats why I tried to cfg a "normal" connection(and it fails)I have already tried reinstalling AOL software(AOL 6/7 & 9)but still get the same problem.

I have now removed/reinstalled AOL 9,the connection is staying on,but various shortcuts now open the wrong files(GoodSol cards opens OfficeXP installer)
