It's a problem with Aol 6 as far as I know...but it also occurs for alot of aol 7 users
And if you do work for aol you might want to take note of the fact that I know A-L-O-T of people who have MAJOR problems with AOL 7.0 on windows XP when trying to set aol to configure the modem especially if it is onboard....would cause a instant blue screen with no workaround
I reported it to aol multiple times...they said it is a windows XP problem...thats is complete BS. I built many systems and a few of the people required AOL, I was forced to install AOL 6...until recently when AOL now grabs what os you are running when you login and if you tried to use AOL 6 it would give you a pop up box telling you that if you are using windows XP you need to get aol 7....Needless to say I have 2 people who could NOT use aol at all until I manually changed all the references in the aol dll's and EXE's to say AOL 7 instead of 6
Now that is a very ghetto fix indeed, but hey it worked
I'm really sorry for the rant..it just really pisses me off that I reported it on the beta boards, and to phone reps and am told it's a microsoft problem...yet when they tell them that AOL 6 works fine so it is clearly an AOL 7.0 problem i'm told I must be mistaken grrr...
