AOL being irritating?

In 2000 we had serious problems with internet service providers and eventually changed to AOL in, which has been very reliable, in the last 9 years we have had about 4 days when we haven’t been able to access the internet.

A couple of weeks ago a really irritating popup search window started to appear when you sign on to AOL, it was so irritating that I considered changing to another internet service provider, if anyone else is having a problem with this here is how to remove it from your computer.

Close Internet Explorer and AOL, right click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop, click on properties, security tab, click on restricted sites, click on sites, in the add this website to zone add the following two sites and and click on close and then OK.


  1. AOL will be pleased with you Michael. I am not a lover of AOL but I cant remember why but I expect it was a good reason at the time

  2. cheers young man i got fed up with to thanks for info on how to remove.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
