Hello,

The problems I am having is this... When I try to connect to AOL, it
gets as far as "Step 5, Talking to Network" and then it hangs for
awhile. It always takes 3 times to finally connect. I even tried
deleting the phone numbers and the modem and have it re-search for
them. When I finally get on I cannot access ANY web sites at all, not
even AOL.COM. I only can access my email.

I have already emailed AOL and their suggestions are Replace AOL
Adapter, Purge Artwork and Delete Toolbar.lst but still did not help.
I also tried deleting all of AOL and reinstalling again last night.

Any other suggestions? I am running Window 95, Internet Explorer 5.5,
and AOL 7.0

Thanks for your help.

Do you have to use AOL7 because you're using Windows 95/

Or can you use AOL8 or AOL9?

If not, I would upgrade to Windows 98 SE and install AOL9.

Eric,

You are correct, I have to use AOL7 because I am using Windows 95. I
thought about upgrading but I wasn't sure if I would have enough disk
space, memory, etc. It is used as a second computer and it is an
older one, it has something like 233 Mhz, 168 mb ram, 3 or 4 gig of
space. I wasn't sure if it would be worth upgrading or if it would
solve the problem. What do you think?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
