    I have had AOL as my ISP for years but over the past month when I try and save a web site to my favorite places I get the message"you have performed an illegal operation and your operation will be terminated'. I get kicked off AOL clear back to my desktop icons.
    How do I fix?

    Well most people who don't use AOHell don't have those problems ;)

    Simply update your anti-virus; uninstall AOL choosing to save anything AOL offers to save; Restart your computer; Do a full virus scan; Re-install AOL.
