I installed AOL 9.7 and found that I can't got to "hofner hounds forum" anymore. When I go to the site with all double checked correct spelling, I get an error page saying I should check my spelling and  I may have DNS issues? I'm thinking about deleteing AOL 9.7 and downloading it again because I can get to the Hofner site if I go to Exploroer but not thru AOL? Is there anyway to check for DNS issues?

Hello!

IMHO AOL is out dated. I would use Firefox or Chrome.

I don't think AOL is a safe browser any more. These days, I wouldn't take a chance.

I seldom hear that anyone is still using AOL

I'm not understanding why AOL is not safe? Is there something unsafe about the program that you can explain?

There is no issue with the AOL  software.  The person that said that has been banned.

 

Here is something from the AOL help page:
