I'm experimenting with something. I used to be an AOL member back in the day. I also recently used a 6 month (plus 3 more) trial just so I would have McAfee Virus Scan for free (included with AOL service). I cancelled AOL, uninstalled it, lost McAfee and all was fine. I didn't like the idea of being unprotected though so I asked someone if I could try something.
I don't know why AOL even has this program available for broadband users. I've never used it, but from what I gather, it's a dialer that lets dial-up users sign on without having to load the AOL program. There is also an option to sign on using BYOA. But if you have your own high-speed connection already, there is no need to even use AOL to gain a connection. They discontinued the AOL High-Speed service over a year ago (AOL offered users their own high-speed service, in case you didn't know). As far as I know, it's still available to those who had it before they discontinued it though.
So yeah, I just need to get rid of the AOL Network stuff. Thank you.
