AOL Running Or Booting Up Slow

I changed my connection to cable to have fast access on my computer. However, I find myself waiting 5 to 6 minutes for the AOL carrier to come online. If this is the case, I will just have to go somewhere else like Yahoo, where besides speed I don`t have to pay anything. What are you doing wrong?

AOL Running Or Booting Up Slow

If you find that your AOL software is taking more than a few seconds to boot up or is running slowly when you have high-speed access, you might want to try restarting your computer. This will restart the AOL software, give you a fresh connection to the service, and possibly fix a glitch that was present in the AOL software or in your connection the first time.

To do this, select the keys "Ctrl", "Alt", and "Delete" at the same time. When your program box opens, select all three again. Or go to your "Start" menu and select "Turn Off Computer".

Can you be more explicit because I am an amateur.
