  1. Multi McAfee Renew Messages

    Tired of getting renewal messages for my benefit subscription for McAfee. Tried to reinstall McAfee on my phones and was told an email was sent to continue the process, but non ever arrives.AOL needs to clean up its act. Last time I had the VIP help line "fix" the problem of renewal - guess what it is happening again.

  4. improve aol desktop gold email

    After getting the newest update for aol desktop gold, the email, while improved, is still not right and I have had the aol software close out of the blue while going through email.
    Not a big deal though.

  8. Going through email

    I have noticed that when I go through my email, the number doesn't go down and there is no red check mark next to each email.

    Right now, I have 236 unread emails, I just went through ten emails and yet no red check mark and the number is still at 236 when the number should be 226.

    The email does fix itself eventually, but it should be instant.

  14. AOL Desktop Gold - Display Compatibility

    AOL desktop gold is not displaying the email items and icon correctly on my computer. Whenever I hover over the email items it keeps on zooming and looks distorted. Icons are also missing when I hover over them. Tried to open this on safe mode and the distortion stopped happening but when I went back to normal mode this still keeps happening. I hope anybody can do something about this.

  16. ADG latency

    whenever you scroll through the emails it highlights everything the mouse passes through which is annoying. Please provide a fix to remove this feature which just showed up with the latest version 11.0.3316. How come we lost the feature whenever you add a new email address it automatically gets added to the address book, if you could please bring this back.

  17. Sloppy Service

    I'm certain this will be ignored, but lately AOL has become one major pain in the butt, First there is the delay is getting on after log one. Then, and the worst, is having to wait 30 seconds (& that is not a guess-that was timed.) Then, if lucky or patient enough for get on AOL, there is that "OOPS" page that comes from out of the blue. I've done 30 yrs with AOL , but that will come to an end. NOW, ISN'T THAT A GREAT IDEA!!!!!

  19. settings dont save after sign off. logging back in erases back to default

    settings and favorites added to toolbar erase after sign off. nothing saves unless you stay online and open, The moment you sign off or close it all goes to default. waste of time adding favs to bar and changing settings if they are going to disappear once you sign off. might fix the coding that shows on top corner of software too with a shield. it has a small shield with alot of bad coding showing. hover over it and it disappears and comes back once you move cursor.

  20. When saving to favorite places, it used to save at the end of the list.

    Now I have no idea where it saves any new pages I need.
