Replacing AOL 9.0 with 9.6 question

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm new to this forum but have a lot of issues with AOL (been with them for 10 years), for now I have but one question.

I currently have version 9.0 installed but am considering installing 9.6 which is on my newer laptop.
Problems I am encountering with v9.0 lately are:
1. some links do not work when I get the results from a search
2. no longer able to send private messages through travel review sites (works through Firefox though)

If I install 9.6 will my "Favourite" links still be retained?

Thanks

Why not ditch AOL entirely and access the WHOLE internet.

I say this after trying AOL and finding that 30% of my saved page links returned a "404" error with AOL, but worked perfectly with every other ISP I have tried.

I have tried backing up favourites several times but it has never worked, not even with the instructions provided by AOL advisers.
True, don't know why I'm still with AOL, partic as they offered to reduce my monthly subs to £9.99 (from £14.99pm) and never did.

As long as you keep an archive / zip of every "organize" folder you can find on your computer you should be OK.

Upon upgrading, if you select the upgrade option rather than the "I want to add another copy of AOL to my computer" when installing it should keep all your favorites and "e-mail saved on my pc" anyway.

If it somehow breaks it, putting the "organize" folder into the new location should restore the above information.

Make sure that at least one of the organize folders has the modified date of the last time you used AOL! (so you know you have backed up a current / recent copy).

Also, don't blame me for any data loss if it all goes wrong!
