I just signed up for AOL and installed AOL 9.0 VR on Windows Vista. The installation went well but when I try to connect, I am getting the message “AOL error ac-3000, the computer could not get an internet connection”. It then asks me to try using internet connection to connect to the internet.  I can access any web site and use Yahoo messenger.  I tried shutting down the computer and unplugged all the wires then connect them back with no success.  I tried installing AOL from another computer (a laptop) that has Windows 7 connected on the same modem and router and I was able to connect.  The other computer uses wi-fi connection.  I already tried reinstalling AOL on the computer with no luck.  Any suggestions?

Hi there,

Most of the problem in installing an AOL persist in its most common compatibility mode. Sometimes, installing this can vary either on what kind of anti virus you are using. Sometimes can be vary depending in your installer, o maybe your installer is corrupted or something.

BEFORE installing..

The only way to prevent an error is to try to disconnect your local internet connection to prevent update.

Just disable any antivirus you got that can cause the loading to abrupt.

Then RESTART your computer again
