I didn't even know that AOL had a download centre!

If I am browsing and discover a download that I want, I simply click on the site's download button and normally have a small window which says Do you wish to save this (and Where?) or Open this file?

I don't have to look for a download centre. Are you trying to download by old IE and OE methods?
One of the advantages of Aol is to let Aol do it for you.

I have been with AOL since V4 and I do believe they used to have a download centre at one time.

Have not looked for it again until just now. Can't find it now on V8 or wife's V9 (don't like V9 myself) so I can only conclude that pauliney is stuck in a time-warp somehow.

Can you post a link to the page you are talking about?

I too am with AOL and can't find the "download centre",when I follow the links on AOL9 to get Spybot S&D it takes me to C/Net which doesn't need any membership to download from.
