Specs: Windows XP
My father has an old laptop running XP that recently started poping up a corrupt file error for a temporary user file in AOL 9.5. I ran chckdsk but its unable to fix the file.

my question is: Is there anway to simply make the popup stop displaying every 30 seconds? Hes looking to get a new laptop in about a month and the file thats corrupted is not affecting anything (even AOL). so is there any way I can just have it stop displaying for a while?

does uninstalling AOL help at all, that way there is nothing using the file?

no, I uninstalled AOL successfully and reinstalled in in another folder but the original file continues to pop up.

The file is in the documents and settings/user/me/local settings/application data/aol/1778765 folder and is a .tmp file
