It has been too long since I used AOL for me to give any specific help, and it will be a lot longer before I will consider using it again, because problems such as your's. AOL's software corrupts IE, and AOL decides what you can or cannot access. Consider using a different ISP service.

Set system restore back, prior to two days ago, when you experienced the problem. If that works you are set to go. If it does not work, consider just using IE. AOL has a tendancy to create unnecessary problems.

AOL must be active to have an internet connection. If not active and no connection, you aint goin no place.

thank you for the quick reply but i used it for long time and never had such behaviour. i did uninstalled aol even from registry but still the problem.and as to restore i did that before but gave no result. especiaally i have another os on my computer and still have the problem in it and have no aol on vista os. maybe aol needs some special configuration to stop that if the reason was from aol.besides i contacted the isp admin i'm using and he confirms no blocking of this website.i receive error (internet explorer cannot display this webpage). thanks and hope to seek with me for another solution. thanks

AOL is your internet connection. If you don't have it open, you have no internet connection. Without that, your pc can not communicate to the outside world.

Then clean install Windows because it will be quicker than cleaning the pc properly of AOL's bloatware for you.

Issue will be fixed.
