    Probably just the usual AOL invasion of privacy. Don't worry about it. *tumbleweed rolls by ... Just Kiddingggg.

    Post the reg entry, to be sure. To be honest, I was semi joking about AOL and sort of just giving my experience of installing AOL software. Expect to find bits and pieces of "things" you hadn't asked for. Be careful to check what options you have ticked at install.
