On your C: drive (the one you want to format) you should find a folder called "program files" inside that you should find an "AOL" folder, somewhere in there you should be able to find a folder with the named "Favourites" or whatever your favourite places is called, copy that folder on to a removable media, disk or usb drive etc. Then, when you have reinstalled your operating system you can replace the new "Favourites" folder with your saved one Ok?.

Has it only been slow since you upgraded to Vista? Do you know how much "RAM" memory you have?

A minimum of 2GB of RAM is recommended for Vista if you want it to run at a decent speed
