    Eileen, some info on AOL. Please read carefully and use the information to help you decide whether or not to completely and forever sever all ties with AOL. First, AOL no longer exists. It was bought by Verizon and changed to Oath. Verizon is also now in the process of discontinuing their email service and transferring accounts to the "new" proprietary Oath. They will still refer to it as AOL because that is a familiar marketing name. It is an Internet Explorer based browser. NOT Internet Explorer from MS, one that is based on the MS version, now superseded by Edge.

    I personally do not care which browser you use, but remaining with AOL, as it currently stands, is not your best choice.

    Here are some links to backup what I am saying.



    Download the AOL Customized Internet Explorer Browser

    Be sure Defender is turned on after Avast is deleted.

    You can check it by going to Control Panel > Security > it will look like this if its on.

    I saw simricks post was this what you were referring to?

    "You can, of course, uninstall Avast Antivirus and use Defender, but be advised that Defender is just not as good with detection, so you need to be "smart" when surfing the web. It would be interesting to see if your problem goes away by doing that, but I suspect it is your AOL browser that is the culprit."

    This was excellent too....."
    You should have a list of all your login sites, and make a plan to start changing maybe 5 or 6 a day, from your old AOL email to your new email address. It will be less painless than trying to do all of them at once. I did this a few years ago when I changed from yahoo to gmail. I still have the yahoo email; I check it every once and a while, and found a couple times, that I still needed it to access old forums which I visit infrequently.

    Just FYI: When I install Avast Free on a system, I choose Custom Install, and only install the following items: "

    Which part did you want me to see?

    How do I shut Avast off? Would it be better to delete it and reinstall using simricks checklist for setting it up???

    Yes, delete Avast.
    Defender should turn itself on after its deleted.

    This is to see if the sandbox pop up stops.
