AOL 9.6 is an all-in-one application that allows you to send and receive e-mails, instant message online contacts and browse the Internet. With the Quick Restore utility --- included with the installation of AOL 9.6 --- you can conveniently reset your AOL settings and reconfigure options to your liking. Remember, resetting your settings will delete all previously saved data, so make sure this is what you want to do before beginning the restoration.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Press the "Windows" key on your keyboard. Type "AOL System Information" in the "Search" box, and then press the "Enter" key to launch the "AOL System Information" window.

  2. 2

    Click the "AOL Software" tab in the left pane followed by the "Quick Restore" button, which is located below the other two buttons.

  3. 3

    Click the "OK" button after reading the information on the "Warning" dialogue box. However, only click the "OK" button if you want to reset your settings. If this is not the case, then click the "Cancel" button to exit the "Quick Restore" utility.

  4. 4

    Click the "Close" button after the status bar reaches 100 per cent, which usually takes less than a minute, to exit the "AOL System Information" window. Your AOL 9.6 software successfully reset itself.
