  1. Slide shows and other click bait should be clearly marked as to source.

    Today (October 21,2021, 5 a.m. ET) there was an article in one of your Welcome boxes titled "McDonald's worker called cops. . ." There was no indication as to the source of the article (Maternity Week; Taco Relish, 'Sponsored by', and other click-bait indicators), and it otherwise looked like current news. I clicked on it and it was a 'slideshow' (i.e.,click-bait). I hope this was just an innocent failure-to-label mistake, and not a reversion by AOL to once again becoming click-bait central.

  2. PLEASE REMOVE THE AOL ADDED MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK 4.8 POPUP FROM MY COMPUTER

    AOL PAYING CUSTOMER FEEDBACK 10-18-21 : 

    PLEASE REMOVE THE MICROSOFT.NET FRAMEWORK 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.

    AOL TECH RESPONSE: 
    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…
