Aol 9.5 Compatible?


Just upgraded to windows 7 on my 64 bit hp quad processor with 8 gig ram and 700 gigb free disk space. I've been using aol 9. 5 software which is supposed to be compatible and ran well on vista sp2. Now i get error messages regarding low memory and that view point media player isn't loaded (and won't load). After 4 sessions with aol tech support they tell me the program downloads but isn't installing correctly and that it's a windows 7 problem. Although aol doesn't show up in the uninstall feature of the control panel it does show up in program file (x86) in my computer.

It will not allow me to delete it. As it stands now, although i can obtain my email on aol, i am unable to use the browser inside aol or access my favorite list nor answer or send email. Aol also doesn't fully load and i continue to get error messages regarding low memory and the view point media player. As it stands now i am unable to even delete aol from my computer. I have been using aol thru internet explorer but the "favorites" list is corrupted and is unusable. Obviously aol isn't willing to help further. What is going on  and how can i either get the program to work or at the least uninstall and remove the aol program from my computer.

Having been a windows user since the days of 3. 1 i find that it is an increasing task every time microsoft brings out a new version of the os and windows 7 is no exception as this is not the only incompatibility. I am beginning to rethink my loyalty to microsoft.

Can microsoft offer any help or solutions ?

Win 7 And Aol

I have been using aol for some years. I installed windows 7 professional 10 days ago and have been unable to access aol through the desktop icon. Aol gets stuck when looking for my password. I can access aol through internet explorer - using the same username and password - but it is not the same and have lost all my favorites. I have tried aol 9. 0 vr and aol 9. 5 and have tried them both with windows xp compatibility.

I have spoken at length to both the aol and windows experts - and they blame each other. I am now stuck and do not know what action to take next.

Is Labelflash Compatible With Win7?

Does anyone know how to work labelflash in windows 7, or which program i should be using. Labelflash, for those who don't know, is like light-scribe but far superior in quality. It is a laser image label burned right onto the disk. The problem is i can't get it to work with windows 7 even in compatibility mode.

The labelflash website provides a free program, for windows vista and lower, but only allows you to use their own images. I want to use my images to personalize my disks. It can be done because, like with my lightscribe, i have done it prior to win7. Any help on finding a program ($$ not a problem) that will allow me to continue using labelflash with win7 to create my own images and not factory supplied images on labels will be greatly appreciated.

Media Player 12 In-compatible

I recently installed windows 7 onto my laptop, upgrading from windows vista. I had windows media player 11 on vista and i understand windows media player 12 comes with windows 7. However, the first time i tried playing some music, windows media player 12 was just a desktop shortcut. The program had deleted itself some how. This would not be a problem if i could download another copy. But the two windows media packs for kn and n windows both say they are incompatible with my computer. Can anyone help? Or must i abandon my music listen on my computer?

Compatible Network Adapter

Last week i went out and bought a hp pavilion desktop model # p6203w with windows 7. We have one computer wired to our dsl and a linksys wireless g broadband router model # wrt54g. My problem is the belkin wireless adapter i bought didn't work. Call hp customer service and they told me that the belkin adapter wasn't compatible with windows 7. I took the belkin back to the store and looked at the other adapters. None of them are compatible with windows 7.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop that works fine with the router so i don't want to replace the router. What i need to know is what brand and model # adapter i need to buy to get my desktop up and running? I have checked the device manager and it offers dial up and broadband but not wireless.

Dell 924 Printer Not Compatible With Win7

It says that my dell 924 printer is not compatible with windows 7. So does this mean that i either need to buy a new printer or just revert back to vista? Will they ever be compatible? Or is there something else i can do? I just upgraded to windows 7 and now my dell 924 printer won't work. I found on the website where it says that it is not compatible. Is this forever or is it just a matter of time before they will make a driver for it?

A Program Or Firewall Is Not Compatible With This Version Of Windows

I am having a reoccurring windows security alert and  issue with my windows 7 home premium edition.
I have a dell studio1737 laptop. I get a windows security alert warning stating "a program or firewall is not compatible with this version of windows"

Name: microsoft console based script host
Publisher: microsoft corp
Path: c:windowssystem32cscript.exe

I also run norton internet security on my laptop. I am also quite careful about my online activities so i am pretty confident it is not a malware issue. But i could also be wrong.
I have contacted norton support and after removing and reinstalling norton is 2010 a couple of times. They advised me to contact microsoft support for assistance because they could not rectify the issue i am having.

Dell support have not been much help either (nothing new there). I have searched extensively for a solution and an answer but i have unfortunately not found anything that has helped me. Can anybody here help me with this issue. Because i am not filled with confidence at the moment about my laptops security? Also if anybody could give me any information about what cscript.exe is and why it is causing these problems.

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?
