Default AIM/AOL starting up when device is powered-on

Please Login to Remove!

I've put this off for a while now but it's really starting to get to me.

Every time I do a battery pull and start my device, AIM (AOL) starts up alongside the usual programs (Browser, Phone Log, Home Screen, Messages, BB Messenger). Since AOL has no options I haven't a clue what to do.

Suggestions?

What? If you're asking if I'm confusing AIM with BB Messenger, then no...

Hi:

On the sign-in screen do you have auto-sign in selected?

Try unchecking.

Yes, AIM (I said "/AOL" for clarification but I think it backfired, sorry).

I doubled checked, but no (that would have been embarrassing). It's starting up but not signing me in.

Sorry olly. I thought you meant it was signing you on. Didn't realize the app was shown as starting.

No other ideas....Can't say I have seen this or heard of it before.

If you don't use it - remove it.

If you do use it - remove it, then download and install again.

Yeah, it seems like the auto login may be checked, but if you say it's not, it must be a problem with the program.
