Just signed up for free tral through aol and Im unable to down load softwear indicates "the contents of this file cannot be unpacked".i spoke with an aol rep.and they directed me to this site...

The contents of this file cannot be unpacked. This means that the executable you are attempting to run has been corrupted.
  1. Obtain another copy of the file, verify its integrity, and try again.
  2. Another option is to request a CD from AOL, which is free.
  3. The only other option I can think of is to download the AOL setup from the Alternate AOL Download site here:
  4. You could also try downloading this file from another computer with a good internet connection.

I will answer this in two areas.
  1. You have an AOL account on a machine and you want to make sure your favorites and emails make it to the new computer
  2. You downloaded and installed AOL on one machine and you do not want to have to download it again.
I will answer the second one first.
  • aoldnld.exe is a very small file that you get from to install AOL 9.5 on your computer. As it installs it gets the rest of the files from the Internet. The computer would have to be connected to the Internet to use the file from the flash drive.
As to the first scenario;
  • Aol has a menu to back up your favorites.
  • Click on the Favorites bar at the top of the screen
  • Click on manage
  • Click on Save my favorites to a file on my computer
  • You will get to choose the location to save the file
  • Select your flash drive.
To backup your Personal Filing Cabinet:

1. Close the AOL software.
2. Click Start, click All Programs or Programs, click AOL, and then click AOL System Information.
Note: If you are unable to access AOL System Information, go to the help article Open Data Folder for instructions on how to manually open the Data Folder. Once done, click the Back button in the help article to return to this article, and then continue from step 4.
3. Open the Data folder:
  • If you are using AOL 9.5, AOL Desktop, AOL 9.1, or any version of AOL 9.0, click the AOL Software tab, and then click Open Data Folder.
  • If you are using AOL 9.0 Optimized, click Data Folder.
  • If you are using AOL 8.0 plus or lower versions, click Folder.
4. Right-click the Organize folder, and then click Copy.
5. Right-click on your desktop, and then click Paste.
6. Click X on the upper right to close open windows.
You can now send this folder as an attachment through e-mail or save it to your USB drive to either keep it as a backup or transfer it to another computer.

I cant access my facebook , it keeps sending me 2 aol search , saying theres a error 440, and all details are correct just wont let me access , can someone help me ! plz

Sound like a hijack of somekind this is normally associated with homepages or start pages.

If the website link that sent you there expected a http site and instead it tried to open a https (secure) site this can give you a 440 error (timeout error)

Also uninstall the AOL search toolbar it might have been installed as part of another software bundle then try again.

You could also use a Hostfile to prevent you from accessing the AOL site copy and paste the URL into the host file in the windows system folder.


The best way to manage this is to use HostMan checkout this FB group for help and advice.

You will need to connect your laptop to an ethernet connection to get on the internet so that you can download the drivers for your MIMO USB ADAPTER. You can also download the file on another computer and use a flash drive or burn a CD to transfer the files to your laptop.

Photo size too large for email

You can do that in 2 ways.

1) Shoot the photo or video in reduced size (less quality). This can achieved by adjusting the settings in your camera.

2) Use 3rd party software like photoshop or Microsoft paint to manually reduce the size using it.
