AOL Optimized PC - desktop acting odd

To whom it shall concern: We uninstalled the "AOL Desktop" application, yet the desktop is purely white in background, and cannot be changed nor does it seem to display the background choosen. It seems that when it boots up we see the proper desktop background, then before we get access to Windows it goes white, and we cannot change it. Thanks, Joe

On the aol optimized pc u cannot uninstall the desktop it needs to be deavtivated from the main screen f10 reboot and do a quick format recovery to bring it back to manufactured mode after the desktop loads in the upper left hand corner it will show desktop options then deactivate. After you should be able to uninstall it.

Hi I'm not sure how to change it but I have a suggestion that might work. Here are the steps to try: Go to START then RUN type in msconfig In the next window that pops up, select STARTUP tab Check in there and see if any startup item belongs to aol. Uncheck all those belonging to aol. Click apply, then click Close. It will ask to restart. Click on restart and see if it still happens when it loads up windows again. Good Luck Lolita

How to change font size


A recent comment about small fonts in AOL Desktop prompted me to explain how to increase the size of your fonts in your Windows Operating System. AOL Desktop will recognize your preferred OS font size so that text throughout the program will be larger. (To increase your browser font size, which is handled separately, go to the Tools menu in the AOL Desktop browser, choose "Power Browsing" and go to "Page Display".) To set the font size in your Operating System (warning: this will apply to all your other applications, not just AOL), go to your Display Properties in Windows XP / Personalization Settings in Windows Vista. On XP, you can right-click on your PC desktop background and choose "Properties", then select the "Appearance" tab". Look for the "Font Size" menu at the bottom, and choose the dropdown for your preferred font size (e.g. normal, large, and extra large). In the screenshot below, you'll see the steps I just described below. I'm running "Large Fonts" so you can see how it impacts my window chrome...

How can I remove an application from my macbook


Uninstall apps

You can uninstall apps you got from the Mac App Store, from other websites, or from discs. You can't uninstall apps that are part of OS X, such as Safari and Mail. Apps downloaded from the Mac App Store: Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, hold down an app's icon until all the icons begin to jiggle, then click an app's delete button >.

Cant get to play farmville on my note book keeps tellin me 2 update flash player which a have tried several times and still wont work


I guess you have a Windows OS, so I will give you some advice concerning Windows OS. Propably there is something wrong with the Flash Player installation on your notebook.
I suggest you firstly, uninstall flash player using the Flash Player uninstaller from Adobe and then reinstalling Flash Player. Here are the steps to follow
1. Download Adobe Flash Player uninstaller from this link http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/current/uninstall_flash_player.exe and save it to your desktop.
2. Restart your computer
3. Exit all applications. Check the taskbar and the system tray to make sure that no user applicaiton are running. For example if you see icons for browsers or IM clients such as AOL Instant Messanger or Yahoo! Messanger, right-click the icon and select either Close or Exit. At the following screen you can see an example of how to close a system tray application (the application displayed is Digsby Instant Messanger) nikolas152.png

You have to close any running application that may be using Flash Player. Such applications are web browsers, Instant Messangers (MSN, Yahoo! Messanger, AIM, etc.), swf files, Projector files (.exe standalone Flash Videos or applications).
4. Run the uninstaller. If any message asking you for permissions to make any changes to the system pops up, allow it (Yes, Allow, Ok).
5. Restart your computer
6. Visit the Adobe Flash Player webpage and check if the Flash Player is uninstalled. If the Flash Player is not uninstalled you will see some information like this nikolas152_0.png
In that case repeat these steps to completely uninstall Flash Player. In case the Flash Player is uninstalled, then from that same webpage you can reinstall Flash Player.
7. Play Farmville!

How to change the 'Contrast' and 'Brightness' on the monitor screen


Bootup your computer and display your Windows Desktop. Make sure yourmonitor stays on for at least half an hour before you begin, so that itis properly warmed up.


Seta pure black image on the monitor so you can adjust the brightness. Toget a pure black image, do the following: Choose Start, then ControlPanel, then Display. This will open the Display Properties dialog box.Click the down arrow next to the representation of the desktop color inthe Color field. Choose black from the color palette, then click OK.


Maximizethe Brightness control on your monitor, then slowly reduce it until theblack of the image perfectly matches the black at the edge of thephysical screen. This puts the brightness at the proper setting.


Open a screen with a plain white background soyou can adjust the contrast. One of the best ways to do this is to open aword-processing document without any text in it. Gradually reduce the contrastsetting of your monitor until the white area of the screen begins to lookslightly gray or off-white. Then gradually increase the contrast until thewhite area on your monitor is pure white. This will give you the proper whitebalance. Now you've got your monitor ready for peak performance.

Hope this may help you solve your problem.
