change your hompage. Right click on the Internet Explorer icon on your desktop and choose properties then change your homepage.

i would also check for the AOL toolbar in add/remove programs and uninstall it. It seems its not compatible with your version of Internet Explorer I assume your using IE7

I would suggest uninstalling it. If you want to use a toolbar i would suggest using Google Toolbar. AOL seems a nightmare for anything.
