All comments about AOLHostManager.exe:
lorrie looks like it is relatd to new latest version of aol instatn messenger, i had used zone alarm to completely block it and it has no problems, but i'd rather remove it as zone alarm keeps coming up with stupid mesages reminding me thati have blocked it and its geting on my nerves, the new version of aol isnt messenger opens up AOL EXPLORER automatically and i think its something to do with this as it wouldn't work without it enabled.
Perry This has to do with AOL dial-up.Disabling it will affect those with dial-up connections.
