Multiple Windows In AOL Desktop
Posted on 2009-05-04
I have a user that demands AOL to be on her system here at work and since I was installing a new system for her (Dell Optiplex 760 with Windows XP Pro SP3) I thought that I would try and upgrade her to the new AOL Desktop which seems to be a little less intrusive on the system and provides a cleaner user interface. This is the latest version of AOL Desktop version 10.1 and I have checked for updates within AOL but there are no other updates available. The system is also running Internet Explorer 8.0 which I believe AOL uses and integrates with in the background for it's browser.
The problem is every time AOL Desktop is opened, there are duplicate "web" windows opened and one window is opened directly behind the other in the same exact window position. In the settings there is nothing that I can see that is set to open multiple windows and it only happens on the initial application launch.
Anyone have any ideas as to what would be causing this? I know my chances are slim in figuring it out due to technical knowledge of AOL being pretty much non-existent; at least through Google and here from what I see but I would rather not have to go back to the older AOL 9 which is pretty bad on system resources.
