    does anyone know of a firewall that will work with aol 8.0 I heard it had it's own firewall. but i went to a site to test my security protection. And i wasn't protected on all tests. Also i was wondering if anyone knows about a popup blocker that will work with aol. I downloaded a couple of them but i still get alot of popups.

    AOL 8.0 does not have a built-on firewall.
    I am not aware whether any pop-stopper will work on aol...but u could try to go to keyword: BPS...maybe they have some tool which may help u

    if nothing works....sign on to aol then use IE to browse the web pages....and then install pop-up stoppers on IE.that is sure to work !

    best of luck:)
