Hmm..well..if it's still on the aol server, then you are in good shape. if not, it's time to rebuild it.

also, you may want to consider a backup like the one at this link

Hi, my 18month old hp pavilion has stopped working it has given me problems since I purchased it. For the last couple of weeks have had trouble booting up. It just got stuck on searching for drivers, now...


The first thing you need to do is backup any important data, such as pictures, files, and anything important that you've saved since purchasing your computer, including emails and any favorites in IE or Firefox 9which can create html or JSON backup files that will populate yout favorites after you restore your original system). If you haven't tried it yet, you may simply just need to do a system restore in Windows. Look up system restore in search to get to it and follow the instructions to restore to an earlier time. Usually a system checkpoint date is best. If you choose to do a restore with the HP recovery partition, that will restore your machine to the way it was when you purchased it and you'll lose some files depending on which restore type you select. All new data will be lost and the system will be returned to factory condition. You should also disconnect all external devices like printers, scanners etc.

Most new computers don't come with recovery disks like they used to. Instaed they have a recovery partition on your hard drive.There are a couple of ways to get to the recovery screen. One way is to tap the F10 key repeatedly when booting the PC. This should take you to a screen that shows your recovery option. Choose the simple one that won't completely restore and format your disk or all new data will be lost. Or, in Windows, you can go to start, then all programs, then HP tools and then select HP system recovery. I'd first try windows system restore though. That won't delete any of your current files or folders.

I am not to good on the computer ,Ijust like to play around on it.But my husband got a new Windows Vista and now i can not find my address book or bubbies screen names, I also went to change mp password,...


www.findanything.com just kidding lol

If you're trying to use windows vista in the same way you used previous operating systems
you may be out of luck because windows vista is a whole new critter.

my recomendation is give it time , learn more about aol compatability with windows vista

you can also turn off the security features in windows vista that pop up every time you try to do something.

I consider this a passive solution but none the less a step farther down the road for you're learning experience as a computer user.

Hello, My company uses Outlook Web Acess connected to Microsoft Exchange. My personal email is AOL...Im trying to export a group of e-mails from AOL to Outlook WA email? AOL Tech support cannot...


HI Azkinney,

I can help you it's not pretty but it works without downloading or buying any programs.

1- create an email with your aol interface
2- open your address book and add everyone
3- don't send the email but select the addresses you have in your "TO" field of the email you created
4- copy the selected addresses to a word processing program like word pad
5- save the new document as a .txt file
6- open this document with Microsoft excel
7- export the document with a CSV file format
8- outlook can import CSV files into the address book

You know its a lot of steps but its the simplest way I have found since AOL hates their customers using other emails and will be as much help as a canker sore on your nose.

I hope this helped. Please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me with my solutions.

I could'nt get on line for hours so aol told me togo to recovery and redo the computer. i did that and now all my pictures and music are gone from my document. i can;t find nothing.


from the sounds of what you are describing aol has advised you to restore your system. basically if you used recovery you may have formatted your drive so all data would be lost

They should be in your address book as always. It shouldn't have changed. Try to write an email and see if your address book icon shows up on the right sige of the email. You can also go to the toolbar at the top and under mail it will have address book. If this isn't what you're looking for let me know. I've had AOL since they were a baby. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, please don't rate yet. Add a comment explaining your problem a little further and I'll be more than happy to help you out. You reached the right guy for AOL problems. Thanks. Let me know how it goes and if you need more help.

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.
