Default I am getting Sick of aol

A day ago at the office I could not open my mail at aol. I called the aol. Some strange speaking guy told me I had to have aol 9.0 on that computer to work right now.

I had to take firewall off of panda. He said it would not cost me anything because I already had aol at home.

So I put 9.0 on my computer at the office. All hell broke lose on the computer. I couldn't open most of my files and get what I needed I do taxes and am deep in work.

I called aol the next day. They tried to tell me that is was a HP problem the maker of the computer.

I could even delete aol. It is rotten system that locks it self from being deleted that suckes big time. And that aol couldn't help is very worst.

AOL did not likely cause those problems to be honest. Yes their the devil I agree.
