Start by verifying your Java version here:

Download the latest if necessary.

WAOL.exe is for AOL.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

✔ Best Answer
Thanks for the response - One of the first steps I took was to reinstall Java. It had no effect. After trying a couple of other WIndows fixes, I attempted to purchase a registry cleaner, but the errors kept the transaction from completing. The only suggestion I received from the vendor was to bring the machine into the Geek Squad or some similar place, pay $100 for a system eval, then $19 a month for following support. This computer is a Gateway, almost 7 years old, and has had been running slowly for the past year. Based on replacement costs vs. repairs, I decided to replace the machine with a new one which carried a base price of $299 at a big box store.

Novel solution but better than buying a registry cleaner. Despite the claims they rarely fix anything because they only remove "invalid" registry entries which are ignored anyway. They have been known to introduce other issues. CCleaner has a registry cleaner which is as safe as any and is free.

Due to the recurring problems associated with Internet Explorer and AOL, I opted to purchase a new box as this one was 7 years old and unusable as it was. I felt it was unwise to spend any additional money on the machine and still have a 7 year old machine. Plus, I had purchased a new monitor, keyboard and mouse recently, so all i needed was a bare bones box. Biggest problem with it is Windows 8, but that's an entirely different beast and must be dealt with on it's on.
