I'm having big problems too with aol on windows mail. Have gone through all
posts here and re installed as per aol's instructions but still cannot send
mail. error message is:

The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account:
'', Server: '', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25,
Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 10060, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

I am using spyware doctor (have used avast and norton, but had same problem)

Please help, i'm going mad!! :-)
