  1. My AOL Desktop Gold is not working

    I noticed there are others who cannot use their AOL Desktop. It freezes up when I login to AOL through AOL Gold, and the only way I can even get on is to go through Firefox. What is going on? I liked the old AOL better. They really messed up AOL. I have been with for over a decade.

  2. AOL GOLD IS SO SLOW ITS NEAR UNUSABLE

    AOL GOLD IS CLUMSY, SLOW, CUMBERSOME, INEFFICIENT AND STILL CONTAINS MANY GLITCHES WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIXED MANY MONTHS AGO, LIKE LAST YEAR. AOL GOLD LOCKS UP YOUR COMPUTER REQUIRING CONTROL-ALT-DELETE FREQUENTLY. AND, SOMETIMES THE LOCK IS SO COMPLETE THAT EVEN THAT WILL NOT WORK. THE COMPUTER MUST BE OUTRIGHT POWERED OFF AT THE MAIN SWITCH. THAT'S PRETTY BAD. AOL GOLD FREQUENTLY CRASHES THE PROGRAM REQUIRING COMPUTER REBOOT. ITS THE ONLY ONLINE PROGRAM I KNOW OF THAT DOES THIS. IT IS FAR FROM COMPATIBLE WITH WINDOWS 7, VISTA AND OTHERS. ADD TO THIS THOSE IDIOTIC AOL SERIALIZED NEWS STORIES WHICH…

  3. Embedded Images

    All of a sudden all embedded images in email are not showing up. I belong to some graphics groups and this situation is unacceptable! If it's not fixed immediately I'm gone.

  5. My Data Export/Import

    Found My Data in settings by accident. Was very happy to see an Export/Import for mail, etc. Had old emails in Gold on one computer so did the Export to transfer to a new desktop. The Import is now taking over three hours!!!! And it's still not done!!!!! I'm going to let it run just to see if it really will import all my 9.8.2 emails. Really shouldn't take this long. The Export also took a very long time. This needs some work.

  7. Error Messages Keep Telling Me My Mail Cannot Be Sent Because of Some Error

    Sometimes I get a message that says my mail cannot be sent because of an error yet it will send if I put it into Mail Waiting to be Sent. Other times it says We Seem To Be Having Trouble Loading Your Mail. Try Again in 5 Minutes. But five minutes, ten minutes, half an hour later and it still won't send my mail!!

    Let me put you in touch with one of our Technical Support agents to investigate this. Please call our AOL Desktop Gold team at 1-888-265-3733. Our experts are available 24/7 by phone.

  8. address book deletions

    Due to the fact that if I delete someone from the address book, it immediately returns to the beginning of the list, it is virtually impossible to go through my address book and delete old ones. Please do NOT return to beginning of address book after a deletion.

  9. AOL Browser problems

    AOL Browser problems are enough to make a preacher's wife cuss, and I should know because I was one for 25 years! Talk about testing my patience!!! Here goes: 1) Once I click on the aol icon, it takes far too long to get even the first signin screen. 2)Once I enter my password, God only knows what response I'm going to get. So far - today alone - I have signed on, only to have a '118 error - timed out' screen pop up repeatedly. The only way I could close aol was by using the task manager. 3)…

  10. I don't like this new Desktop version. It is NOT AOL!

    I wake up this morning and my Desktop is now nothing like I'm use to. I do not like it. How can I use the OLD one where I can click on a story or just pass it by. Why has it changed? I don't know how to use this. Is this what other browsers look like? It's one of the reasons why I still use AOL. Would I have to find an earlier version?

  15. When I save an incoming mail to my PC it's not saved in the right folder

    It is not in the Incoming Mail folder. It's in the Heading folder titled "Saved on My PC and it is the only saved incoming mil in there, The older ones saved on my PC are in the Incoming Mail Received folder.
