AOL is with its own browser. You CANNOT use IE or MSN Explorer

Yes you can, AOL's browser is just IE with a new interface anyways.

But as for your problem, I had the same problem with facebook.com. Are you getting an error saying that the site can't be found?

Sounds like something to do with your hosts file, or some kind of firewall issue. IIRC, patching my firewall and rebooting fixed it for me.

Yes I get the site can not be found message with IE and a similar message from MSN that tells me other things to try.
