I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

In order to use applications such as Hotline from AOL, you MUST be running the 32 bit version of AOL.  i.e., AOL for Windows 95.  Check your version and make sure it says "For Windows 95"...if not, check keyword: upgrade.
