It may seem like nothing is happening but AOL 9.1 is scanning the system & preparing the files. It took about 25 minutes to install in a new computer I built. Hope this helps.

Can't open Internet Explorer...says "connecting"


You can do several thing to fix this.

In AOL 9.0, right click the AOL icon in the taskbar at the right hand corner of near the clock, then click on System Information. When it opens...it takes a few seconds...click on the Utilities tab at the top of the page. Click on the Quick Restore button at the bottom of the page. Click on Procedd, then follow any on-screen instructions after that.

If you donot have the AOL tray icon, click on Start, Programs and look for America Online (no version number next to it). Click on AOL System Information in the sub-menu.

In versions of AOL before 9.0:
Go to My Computer
Double-click the C: drive
Double-click on Program Files
Double-click on America Online X.0

((Note): If you have several installations of AOL, open the latest installation file, i.e., 8.0, 8.0a, etc. 8.0a if the latest installation.)

Doulbe-click on the Backup folder
Right-click on main (or main.idx)
Left-click on COPY
Click the BACK arrow in the upper left hand corner of the window
Right-click on the IDB folder
Left-click on PASTE
Answer YES to the question.
After that is done,
scroll down on the page and fine the COMPVER file.
Right-click on it, then left-click on DELETE.
Answer YES to send it to the Recycle Bin.
Restart AOL

If the above two procedures donot work, uninstall all AOL from the computer, then reinstall it.

You have some viruses and malware.

Start your PC and press F8 several times until the boot menu comes up. Then select "Safe Mode with Networking". Now get some or ALL of the FREE programs below.

Download, Install and Run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware:
http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=5756
When Installing choose the non-pro version.

Download, Unzip, Install and Run TDSSKiller:
http://majorgeeks.com/Kaspersky_TDSSKiller_d6895.html

Download, Install and Run Super Anti-Spyware:
http://majorgeeks.com/SUPERAntiSpyware_d5116.html

If you have an outdated Anti-virus program then Download, Install and Run Avira Anti-Virus:
http://majorgeeks.com/Avira_AntiVir_Personal_-_FREE_Antivirus_d955.html
Make sure to select ALL of the "threat categories" when you install or configure Avira...

You should be in pretty good shape if you run and install all of these programs.

When I try to renew my norton antivirus it says the file is too big for aol to open


Are you downloading a new version? If so, when the download window comes up, select "Save" instead of "Open". When the Save window opens up, save it to your desktop or other location that you can locate it when it has completed downloading. After the download, find the file and run it.

BTW, if you are installing a new version, make sure you uninstall the old Norton before installing the new. This is best accomplished by running the Norton Removal Tool located at:

Norton Removal Tool

Go to the following page on Microsoft’s website and select Continue, then Download. When prompted to Save or Open, select the Open option and follow the directions.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=2da43d38-db71-4c1b-bc6a-9b6652cd92a3&DisplayLang=en

If this does not work, try Option 2.


Option 2:

Go to the following page on Microsoft’s website and select Download. When prompted to Save or Open, select the Save option and save it to a location on your hard drive.

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=4B1F5D0C-5E44-4864-93CD-464EF59DA050&displaylang=en

When the file finishes downloading, double click on the file to run it. You will be prompted for a location to unpack the files to. It is recommend that you use something easy to remember such as:

C:\DirectX

Once the files are done unpacking, open My Computer and go to the folder the files were unpacked to (from the previous step). There should be a file in this folder called DXsetup.exe (or DXsetup). Double click this file and follow the instructions.


Once DirectX 9 is installed, your computer will need to reboot. After it has rebooted, you should be able to run Prison Tycoon 3.

Aol Opimized system


There should not be any problem loading XP on another Hard drive. Just please do not put AOL on it the next time. AOL causes more problems than a virus or spyware. You can then put the old hard drive in as a slave and try to get the data off of it. You could possibly run the XP install and do the second repair and it will take out everything that windows needs and then put it back in. This usually does not bother your saved files but it can. You can run a hard drive test on the drive with another machine if you have one. You can download the hard drive test from the hard drive maker. You can also pull the files off of the drive with another machine.
Rate me if this helps.

Can't open Internet Expl (reply)


Try this instead because maybe files got corrupted already thats why you are missing some option. but read it first before trying steps


1. Use AOL Uninstall to remove most AOL files
2. Manually search the C:/ drive for all remaining AOL files
3. Run Regedit to edit the registry to find and remove all AOL files EXCEPT
Address Book files.

WARNING: Editing the registry is considered a high-level tech responsibility. New users or users not familiar with the registry are cautioned NOT to do the next step. However, if you feel comfortable proceeding, then:


From Start Menu select Run
In the Run window, Type in Regedit
The registry will be displayed on the left side of a two-panelled window
Select the folder at the top
Under the Edit menu, select Find and type in AOL. click on find or OK

The Find engine will locate the first reference to AOL.

Delete this file; F3 to Find Next and continue until all files are deleted EXCEPT ADDRESS BOOK-related files

When this process is complete {you will come to understand why your pc is slower after installing AOL}, Shut down completely.

Reboot the pc

Use your AOL install disk to reinstall a new AOL system.

The install is prompt you for your logon info and open AOL for you.
Addresses will be retained.

Again, This is not a process for a novice user. The danger is selecting a file to delete that may make your system inoperable.
