AOL desktop uses a proxy called "top speed". If you kill the topspeed service AOL will revert to regular data. I noticed a while back on a customers system that AOL top speed was filtering Google. AOL use to use top speed as an accelerator for there dial up users but now I think its just a proxy to filter out sites that AOL does not want you to visit. You can delete the service and AOL desktop actually runs faster.

Note: I am not an AOL noob, lol. I only know about this stuff because I have customers that still use it.
