    Digital signature says Gateway, time stamp 8/24/01. I believe this is the day I first booted this computer?

    :doubt:
    I see this wasn't a productive post. After an exhaustive search I was able to dtermine that these were orphaned registry entries. I did a thorough cleaning of my registry. That seems to have fixed it. Of course, in the process more orphans appeared.
    But hey, I did finally remove every trace of AOL from my system!
    Cheers :D
