Clear the AOL TopSpeed cache for AOL 9.0 Optimized

Web browsers temporarily store images and text from Web pages on your hard drive in a storage area called a cache. If you experience any problems displaying Web pages, you may need to clear your browser cache. Depending on the number of files in your cache, this operation may take a few minutes.

Clear the Cache, Cookies and History

Whenever you visit certain Websites, they will store what is known as temporary Internet files and cookies on your computer to identify that Website. Sometimes these temporary Internet files and cookies can cause the issue you are experiencing. Similarly your History list can also be a concern. The more days you have specified for pages to be saved on your history list, the more disk space is used on your computer. You can free up disk space by clearing this list.
