  1. End aol software manually

    A way to end the aol software manually is to use the windows task manager by either pressing ctrl, shift and esc or going to the start button and typing taskmgr.

    When the task manager appears, on the applications tab, you can end the aol software by clicking on end task or go to the processes tab, click on the aoldesktop.exe, right click, and left click on end process, and click on yes to confirm.

    Two reasons for doing this.
    1) If the software just isn't playing nice with you and freezes
    or
    2) If the software takes over 3…

  6. Past few days new incoming mail does not scroll up to be seen must be done manually. Return to automatic new incoming mail to scroll up

    Past few days new incoming mail does not automatically scroll up to be seen, must be done manually. Return to the automatic new incoming mail to scroll up.

    I had an AOL tech in my desktop Gold AOL and all is working normally and he suggests this must be a new feature. This may be true but I cannot believe AOL would do this as it inconveniences the Gold member.

    Fix and or return my feature to automatically scroll to the top and newest incoming mail fro me to see.

  15. calender

    In AOL Calendar you started automatically adding holidays, including some very obscure holidays. These holidays appear above my events, obscuring my events that are later in the day. Look at October 10, for instance.

    Can you provide a mechanism for opting out of the automatic insertion of holidays?

  17. why do you charge me $4.99/mo to see more & more ads that slow everything down?

    get rid of all these ads running constantly. don't you make enough money by double charging us? we have to pay for use & "security", yet i still have tons of spam in my mailbox...your system apparently cannot discern a real e-mail address from something like "au#vrbdkos.uk". what kind of "security" on your system is that???

  20. To save or not to save log in password

    Once I select "do not save password" for log in, that should never change unless I do so. To keep having the "save password" box automatically checked, when switching screen names, even after selecting "NO", is aggravating and wrong on your part.
