AOL Malignance

Category: Internet

Your Computer: Few viruses are as difficult to eliminate as a bad AOL infection. My new laptop came with about 4,000 AOL icons in every possible nook and cranny: the desktop, my favorites, my links, my startup menu... These days, this is almost impossible to avoid with a new machine, but a couple hours of work usually eliminates the cancer.
Unfortunately, the infection can return when you download certain things including, surprisingly, old versions of Netscape. Why can't McAffee list these guys as the major virus they are and block 'em?

I hate aol weather!!! Why can't you give a simple five-day or ten-day weather forecast. This hourly detail is really not most people want to know. All we want is to plan ahead for the weekend or a few days. Please have a common sense approach.
