Default AOL login problem

My wife has been unable to log on to AOL for a couple of days now, when she does try she gets a message telling her she is already logged in on another user account on this computer.

I've checked all the user accounts and she isn't logged in anywhere else i've also ran task manager and checked all users that way.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried reinstalling the AOL software from their supplied CD?

I would also say ring AOL on 0844 499 5555 <--- New Number! and tell them you want the account password resetting and they will give you a temporary password to log on if that is the case ...you can reset the password after you are online....Oh and Its the Person who pays the account who has to ask for it (Primary Master Name)

They can disable the account from their end too so Say somebodies Hijacked it they'll be cut off [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Tell them about your Phantom Screen Names Logged in

Who knows you could be back on-line in a few minutes? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
