What is taking so long

My name is David.

AOL may have updated information on their web site that does not match information stored temporarily in Safari. To resolve the issue do the following:

Click Safari in the upper left hand side of your screen. In the menu that appears, click Preferences.
In the window that appears, click the Privacy tab. Click the button Remove All Website Data.
Click Remove Now in the pop up window that appears.

Close and reopen Safari and try connecting to AOL to see if the issue is resolved.

Please let me know if the issue is resolved or if you need further assistance.

Also, please provide a positive rating (3, 4, or 5 star) as that is how I receive credit for my work.
