Hi, I was a former aol user and it has always been the opening home page when I open my internet. I switched to comcast a few years ago but still have access to any aol mail.  Although I switched to comcast, my internet still opens to aol and recently I've been having a lot of connection issues opening internet explorer.  My children have computers and never have issues when I do and we all have comcast.(And they don't have aol on their computers)  I work from home so it's really important that I don't have connectivity problems.  I've been having problems all day logging in & was just somehow able to bypass aol and bingo I'm online. I have alot of antivirus software & the computer's fairly new so I don't think that's the issue. I know I probably sound crazy with this question, but after all the aggravation I've had recently, I'm willing to try anything. How do I cancel out the aol home page so it opens right to comcast.net?  Thanks for any help.

Hi dgh1,

.

If you want to make comcast your home page, go to that home page, (comcast.net), Click Tools>Internet Options>click on use current, or type in any page of your choice.

Hope this helps.Smiley Wink

What antivirus software do you have? If you have more than 1 running, they can conflict with each other, causing issues and system slowdown.

To make www.comcast your homepage:

Click on Tools>Internet Options. If you see aol or another homepage there, highlight it and click on delete on your keyboard.  Then type in http://www.comcast.net and click OK.
