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.

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.

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.

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.
