Authentication Error in Internet Explorer 8, Error 1: Authentication Failed

Last Modified: 2013-12-08
I have having a problem with a computer that is running windows vista 32 bit.
Whenever I try to log into the AOL Email Account using Internet Explorer 8 (nasty combo , I know, he he.)
right after I enter the user name and password, I get an Error that says, "Error 1: Authentication Failed"
I have reset explorer to defaults, unintalled IE8 and resinstalled, to no change, cleared all cookies, history etc..  I can log in using firefox just fine with no error, but no luck at all with IE8.  Any help would greatly be appreciated, Thanks very much !
