    How do I configure AOL and IE so that when I launch IE6, AOL automatically launches and starts to dial? I have a new-used PC that I bought at a yard sale, and when I click on it's IE icon, AOL automatically launches and starts to dial. How do I set this up on my PC?

    Try going into IE; Internet Options and under the Connections tab ensure 'always dial my default connection' is checked. In Dial-Up Networking AOL should be the only connection listed there for Windows to consider it the Default connection then restart your computer. Back at desktop try your configuration changes.
