It's not in add/remove programs, but Secunia is saying I have it and that it's not secure for browsing. I never use this particular web browser, so how do I get rid of it for good?

Thanks,

It's showing as patched, but I would still like to delete it. Should I just delete the program folder?

Thanks,

If U cannot find it by trying the other methods I have described just delete the folder via Windows Explorer.

Hi. There is usually an entry in Add or Remove Programs called AOL Uninstaller. When you click on Change or Remove it lists the AOL products that are installed on your machine and you can choose which one(s) you want to uninstall. That has always been my experience as I'm an AOL user.
