I do not understand what is happening with this money situation. I sent the initial 5.00 dollars which promised an answer. Now I am having a request for more money in order to get an answer. Please either solve my problem with aol.com vs aol.de or let me know what is going on with the additional money request.
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
Let me explain. There are two types of support session we provide. 1. Instruction based, 2. Remote Support. The initial amount you paid is for instructions only, and the remote service is the additional service that will allow me to connect and troulbeshoot the issue. Now as per my understanding, if i instruct you - it will be quiet long and complicated for you since this is a technical issue that requires configuration of settings. Let me know how you wish to proceed. Thanks

Well, thank you for your response. Originally, AOL simply told me in an email what to do, to use the www.aol.com/?intl=stay process, and it worked. I would like for you to try the instruction based service first. Also, with remote support I am not convinced I will be able to follow you, especially if it is quite long and complicated as you say. I also am reluctant to believe it is a technical issue that requires configuration of settings, because that was not the case before, through aol. So, shall we try with your instruction based response. Thank you. I will say, if it will save time, that I have already tried the following suggestions:
1. http://help.aol.com/help/microsites/microsite.do? 2. cmd=displayKC&doctzpe=Kc&externalld=62024 3. uncheck preserve favorite website close 1E9 Windows 4. http://www.msn.com/?c=us or http://www.msn.com/?st=1 5. ALT+T+O+D+O (5) www.wikihow.com/clear=your_Browsers`s_cache#Internet_Explorer_9These are things I have tried, except for the last one which I did not understand. I send these all to save you time regarding what I have already checked.All I know is, originally what AOL gave me: www.aol.com/?intl=stay worked right away and was simple. When I put that in now, in the top left hand corner, very small, it changes to the de. setting. Also, underneath where I type in what I want for AOL, there are lots of other things that need to be erased under that, and I cannot seem to erase them, which could conceiveable help. I do not think that talking to me would be helpful because I do not know the terminology.
So, seeing the above things I have already tried, perhaps you have a better and simpler suggestion. I would appreciate it. Miriam Kaul. Thank you.
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
Remote will save time, because i will perform troubleshoot the issue myself. First, tell me which web browser are you using and which time zone / region is set on your PC Clock?
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I use both aol.com and I use gmail.com. It is 17.03 here
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
I need the time zone (setup) on your PC Clock. Also, i need to know the name of the browser (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer).
Ask Your Own Computer Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Google Chrome. I am in Berlin Germany, where the time is now 17.05 or 5.05 p.m.
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
Here's the suggestion to try first. Which ever time zone it is, change the Region to "USA". This will setup the US time on your system, once done. Check to see if AOL takes you to the US site. If it works, you can setup a secondary clock to show the time for the country you are in right now from the Clock. However, primary should be US. Try this and let me know please.

Just a minute. I need to see if my roommate is awake and can set the clock.
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
If this won't work, open notepad as administrator and open the hosts file located in C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hostsadd the following line to the end of the hosts file207.200.111.13 www.aol.comSave the hosts file. Then try.

Did not understand these instructors. I lost you somewhere along the way. The clock thing did not work
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
P.S. If you are in the USA, which you probably are not, but if so, I could call you. I have a special rate. Miriam
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
Unfortunately, i cannot take calls and i do not think it will be helpful over the phone. I can remote in and do this myself. Would be quick. Which part did you get stuck at whilst performing instructions and type me the exact region name in clock ?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The time here is Central European Summer Time. The time now is 19.36, or 7.36. There was no change to Aol.com when I changed the clock to American time. What exactly is the notepad as administrator? Where do I find the
C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hostsadd the following line to the end of the hosts file207.200.111.13 www.aol.com I will look quickly on the internet for a definition of notepad as administrator and a definition of hosts file. I do not understand how you can remote into my computer. Be right back.Save the hosts file.Then try.
Tech Support Specialist: Kamil Anwar, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
You need to set the region to US time, the clock should then automatically update. Notepad is a program on Windows. If you click Start -> type notepad, you will find it. Right click on it and choose run as administrator, but do this step only after changing the region/zone on clock. which operating system are you using?

Question. What if I pay the money for the remote tech support and it still doesn´t work?
A friend came by last night and tried to help. He has me not useing Chrome, which I have always used, but rather Firefox. It worked for a bit that I could go to the AOL.com (USA) site, but today it doesn´t. I always used chrome and never had a problem. Then from there I went to Aol and typed aol.com/?intl=stay and it immediately went to the Aol, USA site, where I checked my emails on that site as well as read the news. I was gone for a week and used some else´s computer (MAC). I don´t know why it would make a difference, but it has not worked since I have returned to my own computer (PC). I am going away from my desk for two hours and then I will return. P.S. I do not believe changing the clock will make a difference. It was always set on German time when everything worked.

P.S. I went to aol.com after having signed into Gmail from Chrome and checked my mail.

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
