    I keep AOL in my system for my wife because it's easier for her she thinks to use it rather than my cable server. My question is: I upgraded to their 7.0. I still have versions 4.0 and 5.0 in my system. Can I remove the older versions without causing any problems? And to do that do I go to the control panel and use the add/remove program? If not how do I do it. Don't believe I need all the old baggage. It must take some space away from me.
    Thanks. Ron51.

    Hi Ron51,

    You can go to Add/Remove Programs and click on AOL. It will then find the versions that are installed on your computer. You can choose the one's that you want to remove. It's very easy.

    regards,
    spaceman

    Just a thought, but you should try to talk her out of using it at all. hehe

    Spaceman_333. I went to add/remove and all it shows in there is:
    American Online.
    AOL Coach Version 1.0 {Build2001 1028.1}
    Doesn't show 4.0 or 5.0.
    Can't delete them if I can't find em I guess. Got any ideas or should I just leave things alone?
    And Par3dud, you are probably right but oh the grief it would cost me. Thanks, Ron51.

    Do you have the AOL installdisk? OR did you Download it? Either way, start an install and it should detect other versions on the hard drive as spaceman_333 said.
