  2. Message appearing about whether or not something is safe; it is from someone in my Address Book...annoying

    I am tired of a message appearing on my emails FROM PEOPLE IN MY ADDRESS BOOK who are forwarding attachments to me. Why do I get this message on an email from a bona-fide person in my Address Book? Just tired of these nosy messages. They are NOT HELPFUL AND THEY ARE ANNOYING!

  4. Issues still present in aol desktop gold

    There are still issues present in aol desktop gold.

    1) Icons are missing from under safety all the way to help. This only affects computers that have an amd processor.
    2) videos still play on auto on the welcome screen.
    3) No manual update for check for updates.
    4) The software causes my hard drive light to stay solid for a good 10 minutes before turning off.

    There may be other issues present still, but these come to mind.

    Trying to sign in on my laptop says "This Connection is Untrusted - You asked to connect securely to api.login.aol.com. but we can't confirm that the connection is secure due to a problem with the websites security certificate (Cert Date Invalid) Such problems may indicate an attempt to steal your information.

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

    Windows 10 was updated and AOL doesn't display favorites in toolbar or save sites passwords.
    Support already ended conversation( HUNG UP ON ME) without solving problem. Very disappointed in Tech support.

  9. Can't upload pictures.

    If I upload pics from camera or phone then click "Show Them" all is fine but they never get put into a folder under My Pictures. Did a mandatory update and hasn't worked since then.

  10. AOL GOLD: "Ooops, Something Went Wrong" Anybody else get this a lot?

    There is nothing wrong with my connection of computer. AOL Gold apparently has built-in glitches that need to be corrected or customers should be reimbursed.

  11. AOL Desktop's Background picture flashing off and on

    I reported this as a "bug" the other day but it's still happening so I figured I'd try this. Whenever I delete or move emails, my AOL downloaded home screen picture flashes black and then comes back on. It sometimes happens too when I use the browser and change sites I am looking at. It doesn't happen on other browsers on my laptop, just AOL Desktop Gold. Don't know if anyone else is experiencing this or not but it's been doing this for several days now.

  15. Webcam

    AOL is requesting access to my webcam about every two hours. This is an invasion of privacy, and I have blocked all such requests in the future. What have you been doing with my image and sound????? And to think that I PAY for this???? You're going to lose a 30-year user to another service pretty soon....

  16. Get immensely better at what you are supposed to be doing

    You have been shut off now for 20 minutes and I have no access. Three other browsers are working. This is unacceptable and I will now begin looking for a new source of internet after using AOL solely since getting the internet many, many years ago. ****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. Crashes by typing anything

    Each time I want to type something within the AOL software (regardless of whether writing an e-mail, searching for something, typing an url into the browser) it stumbles ans crashes completely. Seems to have an allergy against my keyboard or ANY keyboard.

    Best example is RIGHT THIS message I was forced to type with an alternative browser/software. Within AOL this would'nt have been possible to type! Several crushes would have been necessary to finish this short text.

    Do something right now! It's really aweful!

  19. Another problem with AOL Gold

    In the previous version of AOL (a thousand times better than this Gold Version), there was System Information, which I could use to refresh AOL if it stopped working well, and to get rid of bugs. When AOL Gold was installed, AOL System Information stopped working every time I tried to access it. Finally I uninstalled Gold and reinstalled it. Now System Information is missing completely. How can I get it back in working order, the way it was in the previous version?

    Let me put you in touch with one of our Technical Support agents to investigate this. Please call at 1-888-265-3733.

  20. AOL Gold text

    AOL Gold text, both email and anything using AOL interface is terrible!
    fonts are jagged, thin and basically unreadable!
    Find myself using gmail more often as the clarity of it's text is excellent.
    Please correct or you will lose another subscriber!
