Windows 7: AOL no longer compatible with Win 7

AOL no longer compatible with Win 7

I had to reinstall AOL on Notebook but now it no longer works.
It installs fine, starts up and the welcome message can be heard - then it shuts down every time.

I had it on there for ages without any problems but now it just packs up without any message at all so I have no idea what the actual problem is. Can anyone advise please as I've been trying for weeks now and AOL are no help whatsoever.

Welcome to the forums zorana!

Sorry I can't help with your problem. I've been having real problems with Aol too. Mine loads alright then refreshes and refreshes and refreshes etc. The home page is totally unusable about half the time. Sometimes my mail there is screwed up too but not as often as the main page. I've sent help/information requests to them repeatedly but have yet to hear from them.
