Removing On-Line Services (OLS)
Windows installs different OLS programs such as America On-Line, Prodigy, Microsoft Services Network, etc. These services all take up drive space. If you already have an Internet Service Provider (ISP), then you don"t need the OLS that Microsoft provides. To remove the OLS that you are not using, follow these instructions:
- Go to the Start button, Settings, Control Panel, and select the Add/Remove Programs.
- Click the Windows Setup tab and scroll down the list until you locate On-Line Services.
- Then double-click the On-Line Services and uncheck the boxes for the On-Line Services you don"t use.
- Then click the OK button.
This will save you some space on your hard drive. If you don't use any of the OLS, then you can uncheck them all.
