I "solved" my attempt to download and install it on my friend's XP by calling AOL HELP. After signing her up for a trial subscription of AOL's service plan, the AOL tech took over the job and completed it.  FWIW, the Shield display of incoming emails is vastly improved over the previous version.  ..... batpark
