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.


Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
