    1. i have dsl with bell south

    2. when i installed dsl i was able to keep my aol account at a reduced rate because i wanted to keep my email businesss name and i was used to the aol tools.

    3. i brouse the internet with aol and use them for all my favorites and stuff.

    4. i have some utube addresses in my favs and all of a sudden i cant watch and thing any more. it now says:

    Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

    i have downloaded the latest flash player. so wtf is javascript and how do you turn it on?

    is that even the real problem?

    you're still paying AOL?
    stop paying them.
    AOL is free now, for everyone. and has been for over a year.
    I too have AOL but just because thats the format I'm used to and that's my primary email since, ever..
    Whenever you download the latest version of AOL you ALWAYS have these type problems. That's precisely why I don't download the newest version til it's the old version..
    Anyway, since you've recieved those prompts, have you restarted your pc?
    try that first.
    you may need to change your settings also in your internet explorer browsing options..
    theres a couple diff reasons this happens.. therefore a couple things may need to be done..
    lemme know if you're still having issues and I'll walk you thru some of the basics

    GOOD LUCK

    Dump AOL as they are HUGE gun control supporters, just on principle.
