Thank you
there have been issues when updating to Windows 10 and this is being solved via a proper reinstalled.
Not a normal one but via a program called Revo Uninstaller (its free for 30 days and thats all you need it for).
What you need to do is upgrade to windows 10.
Then go to
And download and install it.
Then run Revo Uninstaller and within this, uninstall AOL. Make sure when you do this to choose the advance scan and make sure to delete all registry entries and files that it finds. This is a critical step.
Then restart the computer.
then install the AOL desktop from my link below and it should then function.
If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
