    Read my other post regarding it. Uninstalling and cancelling are not the same.

    you have the question, i have the anser:D

    cookies + temp files are just pices of stuff that get left behind on your computer from using the internet. u don't have 2 delete them, but if u use the net a lot they soon build up. 2 delete them open internet explorer. then click the tools tab + go down 2 internet options. open them. then just click the 3 button's indicated on the atched picture. when u click delete files + anouther box comes up make sure the little box is ticked b4 u click ok.

    aol can just b removed from the add/remove panel, BUT this won't delete temp files/cookies.

    if u wan't there are program's that do the above 4 u. (internet eraser etc)

    p.s what's wrong wid aol? in england it's great!!!!!

    _DM_ Read this carefully:

    To cancel AOL, you must call them and tell them that YOU DO NOT WANT THEIR SERVICES!

    Just because you UNINSTALL AOL doesn't CANCEL the account and further charges.

    just go to internet explorer/tools/internet options and delete cookies and temp files.. it takes care of most of them...

    you can also go to start/programs/accessories/system tools/disk cleanup and select to remove your temp files if it is not selected...

    this TOO will remove most of the stuff that they asked you to get rid off...

    the other thing for you to do is go to WINNT on your C: drive and click on the temp folder... and delete away :)

    DON'T delete the folder by the by...

    else just reformat everything... sure fire way to remove temp files and cookies :D

    soz bout long wait.....

    clearin cache etc just get's rid of stuff that stay's when aol is uninstalled. deleting these DOES'NT getrid of ur aol acount.

    clean disk work's i belive but it don't harm 2 do the steps i detailed just 2 make sure.


    it doesn't mater if u don't delete them really anyway, disk clean up will get rid of most of the files.

    hope dis helps
    :D

    EVERYBODY,,,THE MADNESS MUST END...READ THE INITIAL THREAD.

    Ok, Aol software, is just that , software. For expample, if you buy a car and are making payments, just because you total the car, doesnt mean you dont have to pay for it.

    Same here, AOL needs to cancel your ACCOUNT.
    ANother example, if you borrow money from a friend to buy new hard drive, lets say, $200. You lose that hard drive or get mad and throw it out the window, well you no longer have the drive do you(software) but you still have to pay your buddy right?(AOL.your SERVICE,not software provider..


    Thanks and have a nice day..:confused:

    AOL sux they have little kids that steel you passwords to me AOL=Welcome script kiddies , oh and m8 AOL software is a bitch to remove mostly cos you have to wipe your HD and reinstall windows.

    Maby AOL should get freed durst to advertise them he sells anything

    as far as this AOL thing is concerned contact AOL tell them this.

    You need to stop charging me for this crap you call the internet.

    and when they ask you to calm down you say NO, I wont calm down until you stop charging me for this shi* you call service.


    later
