There are still a few teething problems with version 8. It's been called back for bete testing a couple of times in the past month!
We where asked to download the model number prior to the one you are using so that we could carry out more test.
Stick with it though if you can, it should soon be sorted. Meanwhile try deleting your "Global.Org files" and re-booting. AOL will replace these files automatically.
Also try the members message board, plenty of information and live on-line help there. Regards. j.
