aol limited functionality in

  mrwoowoo 10:54 19 Jan 2008

When installing aol (yes i know),it seems to install but doesen't work properly.
The tale tale sign is the user name doesent show in the log screen.Also it won;t detect my router/modem so no internet.
The same prob in xp was cured by installing in safe mode but this don't work with vista.
Apart from changing isp,any ideas?

Just to say it,s aol 9vr for vista.
The one click fixes don't work either,saying this programme is not compatable with this operating system,go online to resolve this issue.
Nice one AOL.

Just one thing, which version of VR do you use? I don't know if it will make any difference or not but there's a UK version and US version.

I'm running the US version and miss Joanna's voice..

Found an old aol e-mail fix for it that i saved when on xp.
Will give that a go.

Justr this minute had a software update notice to AOL 9.1; click here
Think I'll download it.

Couldn,t access the net so no downloads.
Vista told me the prob and to download a solution so i did when i got my modem/router back online.Then it told me to install aol (same version) over the top of the other without uninstalling as something was damaged in aol and now all is well.
Rather impressed with vista(O:
thanks rdave
