I am unhappy with AOL & I want better service for my money

Specs: Windows 7
i do not want the search window to appear at signup. i tried to disable it like aol gives instruction, however it does not work, also, i am sick of all the ads. i pay enough not to be bombarded with ovvensive ads. i am not happy with aol's service, or non service. also, when an ad appears, and there is an x to remove it, the x does not work. sick of it

below, pick a window, another runaround, there is no catagory for what i want

so dump them. I'm surprised anyone still uses them. Find out what local providers you have in your area, such as cable companies, maybe dsl with the phone company etc. You should have a few choices to pick from.

Why not have your rant at AOL rather than a computer help site run by volunteers?

After all, if your TV goes wrong you don't report it to the undertaker or the local butchers shop.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have no experience with AOL but would an ad-blocker work?

Why are you paying to use AOL service? It is FREE unless you are on dialup and AOL is your gateway to the cyberworld.

Could be that the OP is still limited to dial-up (yep, many people still have no access to what is euphemistically referred to as "broadband"; greater than 56KBs). If that's the case, there's still many "national" dial-up providers available:

How much are you paying? It shouldn't be more than $11.99 a month. They will try to sneak in rate increases by upgrading you to things you don't want so you may need to contact them directly.

When that stupid AOL search box comes up I think if you click on 'about this page' it'll tell you how to stop it. (Lately on mine all I get is a blank page when clicking on their help pages so I can't say for sure if that works.)
