Without.. If you can..

The AOL software is a big memory hog and is nothing more than IE with extra crappy features.

Get away without the AOL software if you can, and use Firefox!

don't bother with AOL software. It's IE junked up with their "software" which I call bloatware or malware because it uses so much memory and you can't get it off your system. Go without the AOL software and use firefox or opera.
