Logging Into AOL


New Email
I have been having problems logging into AOL off and on for weeks now. When I try to log in, I get this message:

This is what it says on the left side of the screen right after I try to login to AOL:

I have not received it but this looks like a general service message.

Is there an acknowledgment, OK, submit, next, continue to AOL webmail etc sort of button you can click on the page?

Are you not able to get past it into your AOL webmail account?

Here are some AOL troubleshooting tips that might help you too :

I cannot get past it into my AOL Mail account, exactly. There is a button I can click on but it just takes me back to the AOL main page.

Have you tried a different web browser? If you normally use Internet Explorer try Mozilla Firefox, or the other way around.

I don't know if this is related or not, but I did a boot up scan with Avast and it did find one corrupt file. No viruses or trojans, just the one corrupt file.

Apparently it had something to do with Mozilla Firefox, because I just got the latest Mozilla Firefox updated, (3.6.2) and now I'm not having any problems whatsoever!
