  1. PLEASE REMOVE THE MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORD 4.8 POPUP FROM MY COMPUTER

    Can you remove and/or tell me how to remove the MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK 4.8 popup AOL placed on my computer? It deactivates all forward progress unless closed or canceled and is really invasive. Thanks.

    I understand this looks invasive, but .NET Framework is a Microsoft component and it has to be updated regularly for other programs to work properly, not just AOL Desktop Gold. You can continue to cancel or close the window, but at some point, you will need to update this specific component as well as part of your Windows Updates. Thanks for understanding!

  4. Email address for AOL to forward fraud. That way we can alert AOL of stuff currently circulating.

    Most companies have a email account where one can forward, from their personal AOL account, to that company to report a suspected fraud email. Such as: abuse@AOL.com This would save a lot of time. PS What is user voice?

    The “Check For Updates” option in the Help menu of the new AOL Desktop, will trigger the updates to download, but will not display a confirmation message when it is finished, as the updates are installed in the background. Keep the AOL Desktop signed in for at least 20 minutes then close and reopen the software. The update should automatically upload.

  8. Update AOL Gold Browser

    AOL Gold browser needs updating. When visiting sites such as ebay, the cursor does not appear in the search bar for the site. Google and Firefox work fine. ONLY AOL Gold has this issue. Paying customers deserve a better product

    Please send us a crash report in order for our engineers to look into the issue you are experiencing. To do that, please follow these steps: 1. Open AOL Desktop Gold. 2. Click on Help on the top right, and select Report a Bug from the drop-down menu. 3. Type a short description of the problem, and click Send.

  9. Please create a feature call PERMANENTLY DELETE ALL

    Everyday there are so many junk emails, right now AOL only has Permanently Delete, but only ONE junk email at a time. It is very inconvenience and time consuming. Can you imagine how much time is lost or wasted by deleting ONE JUNK MAIL at a time?
    Please add [ PERMANENTLY DELETE ALL ] that will take care all the problems and save time for all AOL GOLD subscribers. If such a program is on, I do not care how much junk mails in my box, all I need one push they all permanently gone forever, Does this make any…

    Thank you!

  10. Looks like I am not the only one!!!!!! For your search: “Your rules cost me most of yesterday, my health and my day today!

    Now on my own but after hours ++++ of tech help and a totally incompetent and bone == headed C.S. person who would not transfer me to Tech even though I have paid per month since 1085 for that help! and I was up until 4:30 AM this AM, and would not text me to verify me today to help me to get through the problems I had again today with AOL Gold since I had too many texts over the last 12 hours, with no matter that I would leave for an 8 day trip after tomorrow and needed…

  11. I spent 45 minutes on hold with two different people. The first just referred me to another who while trying to help me, dropped the call.

    Hire people that know your software. The person in tech support did not know that your company has stopped separating emails from people in my address book and everyone else. So now, many of my important emails are going to the spam folder.

  12. AOL Desktop No Longer Opening

    With Adobe canceling its Flashplayer and the latest Windows 10 update, AOL Desktop Gold no longer opens. Why am I paying to have the gold browser and its support features, if it's so old and has been so outdated for so long that a couple of much needed updates shuts the whole thing down. I'm now relegated to using Chrome to access my AOL emails.

  13. Windows 10 was updated and AOL doesn't display favorites in toolbar or save sites passwords.

    Support already ended conversation without solving problem. Very disappointed in Tech support.

    Make your service actually work. I've spent hours on the phone with your techs and reported the "BUG" numerous time with no solution.
    I'm a VERY VERY LONG TIME PAYING CUSTOMER. Your lack of customer service is AWFUL!!!!!

  18. I tried your offer to download AOL Desktop Gold for another computer when I did the question was do you want to cancel the AOL I have?

    Why do you offer: Download AOL Desktop Gold for another computer. I tried and your question was: You already have AOL, down you want to replace it? I have two PCs and I thought the offer was for the second PC?

  20. Official AOL Emails should be marked as such more clearly

    Mark official AOL emails more clearly like they were before. They seem to have a slightly different color mail icon but previously the icon & the actual email when opened was clearly indicated as "Official AOL Email". Also if they are indicated as official AOL correspondence how do these emails sometimes end up in the Spam/Junk folder? In this day of so much spam it is important to know what is official.
