"Unbeleivably dysfunctional"

October 25, 2015  |  By 1Chris

 |  Version: AOL Desktop 9.7


Works once in a blue moon


This is the most UNbeleivable dysfunctional piece of garbage I have ever seen in the computer world. I've checked it every few months for the past 19 years - and it has NEVER improved! Unfrigginbeleivable!


It's really too bad. With the name America, it should be at least decent.

"Worse than a virus and unnecessary. Stay away!"

April 01, 2015  |  By link2jon

 |  Version: AOL Desktop 9.7


Sometimes works to get to email and address book and old messages


Sucks resources, freezes and crashes especially with google chrome Accessing through browser directly without using this POS application is better in all respects.


Have kept aol for old time's sake, original screen name, access to old messages and history. On most of my computers long ago switched to direct browser access to but for some reason continue to use their desktop application through 9.7. Entire computer deteriorated to degree feared severe viral infestation or dying hard drive. Finally removed aol 9.7 and computer seems better than new. Wish I could bill aol for scores of hours of time wasted over the past few years.
