Try restarting your computer
If you haven't recently restarted your computer or you don't restart your computer very often, we recommend that you do so. Restarting the computer clears the internal memory; this often resolves many issues.
For instructions on how to restart the computer, please read our help article Restart the computer.
Try clearing your cookies, cache, history, and footprints
Whenever you visit websites, temporary internet files and cookies are stored on your computer to record your return visits. Sometimes, these temporary internet files and cookies can cause the issue you are experiencing. Your history list can be a similar concern. The longer the time period you have specified for pages to be saved on your history list, the greater the disk space used on your computer. You can free disk space by clearing this list.
Note: Once you clear your cookies, cache, history and footprints, you may lose the following:
- AOL Radio presets
- Websites you have visited
- Your shopping cart
- Your customized pages
The instructions to clear your cache, cookies and footprints will differ depending on the browser you use. To learn how, please visit our help article Clear cookies cache history and footprints.
Note: Most users need not clear the TopSpeed cache. However, if you experience significant performance problems with the AOL Calendar, clearing your TopSpeed cache may help fix the issue.
