  1. I installed AOL but it keeps telling me that it has to add features and restart the computer. I can't even get to the point where i have to set it up.

    I strongly discourage installing AOL it is full of bloatware and adware.
    Most of its software will also interfere with other stuff.

    I agree Ted. I have seen nothing but problems with AOL on most computers. Especially with their newest version which contains all sorts of crap.

    The problem is AOL is marketed to those who tend to have the least computer experience and knowledge. (Those who are poor and can only afford dial-up.)
    Most dial-up service software is pure garbage and full of adware/bloatware crap.

    My father has MSN dial-up and I had to root out most of the garbage just to get the dial-up access on his computer.
