There were two versions of AOL 3.0. One was for windows 3.1 and one was for windows 95. Make sure you have the correct one for win95.

Also, what Operating System are you running? XP is incompatable with earlier versions of AOL. You will need 7.0.

Also, AOL is notoriously finicky about uninstalling and then reinstalling older versions of thier software. It has been known to leave machines unable to connect to any ISP.

another option is to pull aol4 off your W98 cd (W98 SE anyways)
- in the win98\ols\aol folder

i still use aol 4 (as a cheapo backup to the cable connection) and it works fine

remember to save your 'organize' folder when you uninstall so you can add it to whatever version you end up running

i've never had problems installing or uninstalling - using the add/remove function in control panel

good luck
