Ladies and gentlemen another public service announcement. If you are using AOL email, RUN. If you are using the AOL software RUN. If you are using AOL anything. RUUUNNN! Seriously. It’s all packed to the brim with spyware. I am not kidding. Get another email, do not use any of their services.

I had a client who had a completely clean computer use the AOL software and the very next day (no exaggeration) his computer could barely work because it was so infected.
Let me know if you have any comments or questions about this or if you have had problems with AOL yourself.
