How DO I uninstall AOL 9 including Security Suite, AOL explorer

    We need to uninstall AOL 9, AOL Explorer, AOL Picture Album, AOL Security
    Suite, etc. Altogether it's six or seven AOL applications that need to be
    uninstalled
    from a XP Pro PC. I remember some years ago AOL left a lot of artifacts
    after it was installed.
    Any suggestions for a clean uninstall are appreciated.
    Thanks,

    Mike

    JHC. Well you **could** just try uninstalling and running a reg cleaner
    etc. However, I suspect it will be easier to back up your personal info and
    reinstall XP. Your machine will seem like a greyhound. Hopefully.

    I'm a little gun shy to use xp's add/remove programs applet because aol
    installed so much crap.
    I'll try it.
