AOL: malware!?

According to every other technology site on the web AOL is now "badware" according to

In my experience, it is better to install as little as possible from your ISP to ensure you maintain control of your browser, favourites and system overall. In the rare instance they provide a truly useful program gift (such as a free firewall/popup blocker), look for a "custom" option in the installer to make sure you only get what you want and also check whether the program is actually available for free on the web anyway (sometimes the web version will install less extras).

Good luck cleaning your system if you have AOL software you decide to uninstall.
