Gamesville.com - Help - AOL

I'm having trouble playing Gamesville using AOL. Help! 

Whenever you visit a website, AOL will store a copy of that site's pages on your computer to help speed up your page-loading the next time you visit. Unfortunately, sometimes these "temporary Internet files" can get stuck and cause problems. Here are some tips on how to remove those temporary files and free up resources to get things working correctly.

Clear AOL Web Page Storage Cache

You can store Web pages on your computer. This makes for faster Web browsing but takes up space and can result in your Web pages going out of date -- or getting "stuck".

  1. On the AOL toolbar, click the Settings icon.
  2. Click the Index tab.
  3. Click the Internet [Web] Options link.


Delete Toolbar History

The history drop-down menu on the upper right of the Navigation bar displays the lists of most recently visited AOL areas or Web pages you have visited. You can delete this list (or toolbar history) if it becomes too long and confusing.

To delete the toolbar history using AOL 9.0 Software:

  1. Go to AOL Keyword: Toolbar Settings. You can access this keyword only through the AOL software.
  2. To clear the toolbar history each time you sign off or switch screen names, click the Clear History Trail and Auto-complete after each time I Sign Off or Switch Screen Names box to place a check mark in it.
  3. To clear the toolbar history, click the Clear History Trail Now button.
  4. If you wish to clear the toolbar history trail, click the Yes button. Else, click the No button.
  5. Click the Save button.
To delete the toolbar history using AOL 8.0 Plus or AOL 8.0:
  1. On the AOL® toolbar, click Settings, then click Preferences.
  2. Access the Toolbar & Sounds link.

  4. To clear the History trail, each time you sign off or switch screen names, click the Clear History Trail and Auto-complete after each time I Sign Off or Switch Screen Names box to put a check mark in it.
