I recently accepted AOL's advice to upgrade to the latest version, and chose the alternative that saved everything. But I've lost all my favourites. How do I get them back ?

Hi there and welcome

Did you do this on a windows or mac computer?

Please let me know

Windows 7

ok, I want to do a system restore please.

To do this, close all programs.

Press the windows key (the one to the left of the left ALT key) + R and type in the run box that opens


Press enter

Then follow the onscreen steps to choose a system restore and choose a date before this problem occurred.

Let it complete and tell me if it now functions correctly please

Result !!! Does this mean I can never update AOL ?

It is a fault with this current version, ignore any updates for now, and you can update on the next one

Glad it is fixed, any issues though let me know

And please take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit
