Yay! I have DSL from Verizon but I still use AOL. It's expensive so I'm glad to hear I'll be getting a break!

LOL Mira ...
Seriously, I'm really sorry you had so much trouble with your AOL service but, apparently that was quite a while ago when you first started using a computer. Gotta tell ya' - things definitely have changed drastically on the AOL browser & service over the years.
Deleting or 'not accepting' free software, adware & spyware is truly "a piece of cake" these days. You'd be amazed at all the positive changes and features AOL has employed to make your internet experience easier & more enjoyable.
If you have high speed access - you may wish to give AOL another try as long as it's "free". You can always keep your current provider and delete AOL completely if you're not happy with it.
Just a thought ....

i was so computer dumb, i let them give me all that junk, and had no idea how to get rid of it. i also play mmorpg games, and they cant deal with aol.
i got lucky, married a pc technician and he sorted it out...he bought me a new computer <giggle>
from what i heard in my own ear, aol hires cs people on the basis of their obnoxiousness and deafness...they wont answer questions with a straight answer, get all pissy if you are dumb, and at the end, 'is there anything else i can help you with?' in the most patronizing tone. this, after not answering the original question!
that was only 3 years ago. i doubt much has changed...
