The change to v 9 and subsequent updates make a copy&paste of version 8's data slightly iffy.
If Aol 9 is loaded but not connected to the net, again I'm not at all sure this will work...........
And then there is Vista!
If you really want to try, and with care you have nothing to lose. (I am using XP and Aol 9)
First the old computer:-
Open My computer and then your C:(?) drive.
Click on the following -
Documents and settings
Application data ("un-hide") this system file)
C_AOL 9.0.........then you will see two separate folders -
idb and organize (note the z in organize)
Copy each folder to a pendrive or CD
You are finished with the old computer now.
Open My Computer on the new one and repeat the long path above until you find idb and organize again.
This time rename each folder with a suffix like .old
(If this doesn't work you can at least backtrack)
Finally paste the old idb and organize folders into this folder.
With any luck, the next time you load Aol on the new computer you should be able to find your old email, favourites and address book!
As for a simple transfer I don't believe there is one which can be decoded from Aol into IE etc!
