Narrowed it down.
1. Click START on the TASKBAR.
2 Choose SETTINGS and choose CONTROL PANEL.
3. Double-click the NETWORK icon.
4. Under the CONFIGURATION tab, highlight AOL adapter.
5. Click the REMOVE button.
6. Click OK to close Control Panels window.
7. Select YES when asked to restart the computer.
8. The next time AOL is launched, a new AOL adapter will be created.


well guys I am a happy browser again. I friend suggested that I pop in a aol cd and pull up all the files in it. When I did this; I found a file called web. double clicked it and found aoltech.util.
double clicked it and it began repairing the browser. rebooted and restarted aol and I am back on the net. This util. also increased the speed of my connection.

Hiya

I'm assuming aol adapter is the only one, but we'll wait for Doyce to confirm this.

Your right Eddie.

If that doesnt do it, follow the second one and we will go from there.

Luck.

when i took out the aol adapter and restarted i then tryed to sign back on to aol. it stopped connecting at step 5 (talking to network). i waited ten minutes and went in to the little icon on the bottom right corner of the screen that looks like 2 little computers in slightly overlapping the other( i dont know what its called) anyway i right clicked it and i checked the status it said the following:
connected to aol L2TO
connected at 115,200bps
duration:8 min 33 seconds (and it was still counting up)
bytes received 601
bytes sent 601
modem HSPS micromodem
server type PPP: internet,windows 200/NT,windows
protocals
challenge handshake authentication TCP/IP

i retryed 3 more times then
since i am running windows me i used my system restore program and restored my computer to the first day this month. then i tryed to sign back on to aol after it was done and it worked fine. what did i do? i printed out your suggestions so im sure i followed your directions carefully:eek:

This is from the link Eddie gave. Do all of the steps.

One of the most common problems for AOL users is their screen freezes. Often you can unstick your computer on AOL by clicking the following buttons.

TRIANGLE <-- Click the little blue triangle in the top left of the AOL screen

HELP <--Click (Top center of the AOL screen)

ABOUT AOL <-- Click (This often unsticks the screen)

You don't need AOL graphics files taking up space - this lets you delete them


MEMBERS <---AOL30 Users click (AOL40 Users click MY AOL)

PREFERENCES <---Click

GRAPHICS <---Click

1 Meg <---Change Maximum Disk Space to 1 Meg

OK <---Click

RESTART AOL TO FORCE IT TO PURGE THE MEMORY (cleans graphics cache)

MEMBERS <---AOL30 Users Click (AOL40 Users click MY AOL)

PREFERENCES <---Click

GRAPHICS <---Click

20 Meg <---Change Maximum Disk Space back 20 Megs

Occasionally, one or two files won't allow themselves to be deleted (that's ok) just skip that file and delete the rest. Note, while deleting these files is something that many people do every week, I cannot guarantee that you won't make a mistake. So please. Read carefully... And if you are unsure.. . Don't do it......

NOTE: DON'T DELETE FOLDERS... Only Delete FILES.....


START <---Click

PROGRAMS <---Click

WINDOWS EXPLORER <---Click
A New screen comes up...
The Left Side is Major Folders and Drives
The Rights Side is what inside the Folder/Drive that is highlighted on the right side

Windows <---- Scroll down the Left side scroll down and Double click on Windows

History <---Scroll down the right side and Double Click on the History file
On the right side on the screen the history files appear

Place the cursor on the first file on the right side (It should become highlighted)

Hold down the SHIFT KEY

Scroll down the RIGHT SIDE to the last file. Put the cursor on it

Let go of the cursor

All the files on the RIGHT SIDE should now be highlighted

DELETE <----Click

All the files in the History Folder should now delete (may take a minute or two)

That's it. You just deleted a bunch of junk in the History Folder
Note: Some folders and files may say something like access denied or this is a program, etc., simply leave them where they are (Hey, they ain't hurtin nobody) and delete the rest of the files one at a time

DELETE FILES IN YOUR TEMP FOLDER
To delete TEMP files, repeat the process above, but instead of HISTORY, substitute the word TEMP (Instead of History)

DELETE FILES IN YOUR TEMPORARY INTERNET FOLDER
Finally, repeat the process a third time, this time to remove the TEMPORARY INTERNET files, simply go through the steps again, this time substituting TEMPORARY INTERNET for History.

If none of that works then click on the msconfig next to my name and go through your start up and uncheck what you dont need. Post back what you are unsure of.
