Re: AOL slow on Mountain Lion

I think it's time to leave 1997 behind and move out of the AOL world to maybe something more current like Gmail/Google services or iCloud/@me.com email. As it is AOL is just an aggregator that steals info from everywhere else and put's it into one spot, the same experience you can get from a hundred different other sites.

dvanderdelde and RiseAbove: I agree with you, and in fact I have been trying to ween my wife away from AOL for a very long time. But she likes it, and she is plenty good with other computing tasks.

So, the questions still is: What can I do to make it run faster on Mountain Lion? Mars's link is very interesting, but I think it is for a much older OS than Mountain Lion. Also, having just bought the MacBook Pro and downloaded the most recent AOL for Mac, I would guess that deleting the files in Mars's link won't help, as they are probably brand-new preference files for this new version of AOL for Mac. But we might try it at some point.

Still open to your thoughts.

Consider the slowness a blessing. It could be the only way to ween your wife off AOL!
