AOL Users - Read This
If you use AOL as your internet service provider or if you are using an
AOL browser provided by AOL, please follow these instructions below!
AOL service is fine. However, there have been changes made in their
browser software that makes it nearly impossible for you to login and
or stay logged in to sites that require user name and password.
The problem is becoming more apparent as AOL automatically updates their software on your computer when you login to AOL.
Until AOL fixes this new bug they have created;
1. you will have to get on the internet as usual
2. and then minimize your AOL browser
3. Click on the Internet Explorer icon and use Microsoft's browser to continue with your online browsing.
The reason you are having difficulty with login and staying logged in
is that the AOL browser software sends different ID numbers (proxy
server numbers) when a web site requests it's ID number (cookie
information) to validate that you are logged in and approved to view
the next page you are trying to see.
LOP is short for lop.com, and it is one of the most annoying things on
the planet (or at least the Internet). If you happen to browse a site
(not ours!) that has a LOP popup, you are defenseless. It auto installs
itself into your browser, and there is nothing you can do to stop it (I
suppose you could disable java, active-x, cookies, etc, but that makes
the internet experience oh so boring and most modern sites unusable).
The evil thing about LOP is that it totally hijacks IE (and other
browsers) and makes it do its bidding, namely redirecting all your
clicks to a spy server to see what you are up to.
