  1. AOL desktop gold software on AMD cpu

    I have noticed that for some strange reason, the aol desktop gold software runs poorly on my desktop computer that has an AMD cpu.

    Upon starting the software for the first time in the day, if any link is clinked, the software appears to freeze for a good 5 minutes before unfreezing itself.

    Since this issue is only present on a computer running on an AMD cpu, a hotfix should be applied. My laptop has an intel cpu and the issue isn't present with intel.

  4. Deleted Groups

    in address book if you want to delete a contact the delete option gives you the following in this order;

    delete contact from address book
    delete group
    remove contact

    a few times by mistake i have hit - delete group, this deletes the group with no way to recover it. There should be an option 'are you sure you want to delete group'. If not there should be a method of retrieving the deleted group.
    Also 'delete group' should be the last option.

    These groups and distribution lists take a long time to create and if deleted with no method…

  7. McAfee

    I have repeatedly set a scan time only to have McAfee pop up multiple times to say they are scanning. This "benefit" is worthless and should be dumped as they are only interested in selling upgrades, constantly.

  8. HELP!!!!!

    HELP on AOL is a joke. Getting help from anyone is impossible. I have literally spent hours on the phone with Customer Service Reps who either were unqualified, or unwilling to help me resolve any problem. I have been a loyal, paying AOL member for decades, and I have been treated unfairly.

  9. How about everyone drop AOL

    aol is payed for a service they say they can provide. The issue of not being able to see my Favorite page has been sent to AOL several times. Maybe it is the Desktop gold that is the problem. Even an aol tech could not / can not correct the issue. How many people like paying for something they can not have? Maybe people should drop aol and find a more trustworthy service

  10. blinking ads

    The blinking/flashing ads designed to get people to notice them have caused my neighbor's son to be hospitalized. He has the type of epilepsy that is adversely affected by that kind of thing. She has consulted with an attorney to see if it's possible to sue AOL and he thinks there's merit in such a lawsuit. He's currently investigating the possibility of a class action suit but has already filed in her behalf.

  14. Please fix our emails!!!!!

    So I see the new feature in the email and that is fine and dandy but you still haven't put back the email counter on the sign in page so we can look and see if the emails need tending to before we waste our time signing in to check them. I really hate having to sign in just to see how many new emails I have 20 times a day. Please add that feature back in our emails! I would have rather had that then this delete feature you added on every single line of our emails. PLEASE!!!

  17. Address Book

    To who it may concern:

    I think this this something that ought to be changed right away........

    You can not put AOL's address book in alphabetical order...........

    If you look up something in any phone book or any other address book, you will see; that they always start with the last name first. then the first name, etc NOT TRUE WITH AOL. Also, when you are fixing
    things in the address box, let the client be able to arrange the columns
    of information in any order they feel that works better for them. Should be an easy fix.

  20. Again - - get rid of the background information and cut to the chase!

    I wanted to see what Nostradamus had predicted but I would have had to wade through who he was and lord only knows what else before I could get to the predictions. I didn't bother as I can find them elsewhere.
