    aoldial.exe is a component of AOL which is supposed to automatically connect you to AOL on startup of your PC. As I understand it, this is giving a lot of people grief and really is not needed. Go to Start > Run > type in msconfig >OK. Startup tab > scroll down to the aoldial.exe and uncheck the box next to the entry >OK. Reboot the PC > after reboot, a Configuration window will open, click the box 'to not show this message again' or words to that effect. You should not get this error message again. Keep us posted.

    Better yet, go on "msconfig" find all AOL programs there and uncheck them.

    Head to Start > Network Connections, and click on "Create a New Connection."

    - Hit next, then make sure the Radio Button "Connect to the Internet" in checked.
    - On the new screen check "Set up my connection manually."
    - On the next screen check "Connect using a broadband connection that requires a username and password."
    - Enter a Name, such as "AOL DSL."
    - For your username use: "@aol.com" and enter the password for your account twice.
    - Check the "Place a shortcut on your desktop" if you want a shortcut their easy.

    If all goes well then you can use this connection to connect to AOL without using the terrible client that they give us. Been using it for about 4 days and it works great, even saves about 3 minutes on loading time because the AOL software is so terribly crap.
