AOL Overide

The new AOL Overide was difficult to install, hard to understand, and was unable to point me to all my old favorites, had no toolbar, and in general messed me up royally. The idea of something you can click on  the desktop that will put you on the internet sounds good.  Maybe it will work that way eventually. 

I was just getting to the point of being able to navigate around with the old system (9.0 Securtiy Edition SE) and the new one came out.  Oh, dear, more to learn.

AOL Overide is NOT a replacement for the AOL Software (9.o Security Edition), it is rather a vamped up version of IE (Internet Explorer). You could try to import your favorites from your AOL software..... I haven't looked into it, but I would look for an Export from your favorites and export as an IE file, then Import them into Overdrive.... It might work..... The other thing you could do is copy and mail your favorites to yourself and then put them into Overide that way, but that would take a while!  

If you like the tabbed browsing and want to get away from AOL's client software, I reccommend you download Firefox and just go to AOL.com!
