Default AOL Active Security Monitor

I've always been reluctant to ever use anything from AOL, ever.

But i was looking around on cnet and noticed that it had a list of top anti spyware tools. And they had AOL Active Security Monitor on there.

I wanted to know if anyone had ever used it before, because it has some interesting features. Has anyone used it? Any good?

AOL and security don't even belong in the same paragraph.

AOL is guilty of using spyware.

AOL and secuirty LMAO. AOL is prob the most unstable, useless, lowest, most unsafe browser on this planet.

AOL uses more spyware, then spyware companies use, I wouldn't trust it. AIM is about the only AOL software I have.

I've had bad experiences with everything AOL. I've heard AOL uses alot of spyware, that makes me leary of using AOL. AOL & Security just don't go together. I agree with what people have said about this...

I hate AOL's so-called Spyware Protection so much, I disable it. I strictly use both Ad-Aware and Spybot together. That takes care of me!
