    email I can't reply nor forward any email. Last night someone tried to help me get avast installed but we were cut off at 10:05.
    I have a 2005 Mac Mini, OSX 10.4.11.My computer doesn't support Avast as it is too old.
    Last Fri., I called AOL to ask them if the virus would hit my computer and they said 'No." Get help NOW. Or, forward to whomever can help me.

    I hvae this same problem and I even paid for AOL today to get some help. Even though this is affecting all of my friends, family, and co-workers, AOL is refusing to help becaUs eI do not have the answer to a security question. I have also had the account for over a decade so I do not have the original phone number that was used at set-up. Reena on live chat disconnected me three times and she said that there is nothing they can do. I guess it doesn't even help to pay for customer service with AOL. I am so mad that I cannot shut this account down or change my password to protect my friends and family.

    Hello, there was a question similar to yours a few months ago.  The link is below, read the comments and I am sure it can help you out.

    Hi Joel,

    If you still have access to your email, reset your AOL password. Make sure that you're not using the same password as your AOL on your email to prevent the attacker from gaining access to your email as well. If your email has been compromised, please let me know which provider (Gmail, Yahoo, Msn, etc.) you use to help you regain access.

    For additional security precautions, only do so from a secure computer. You should consider scanning your computer for malware using Malwarebytes (update first, then perform a full scan). Your new password should be strong and not related to your previous password.

    • Jeff Fabish

      Jackie & Busy,

      You will need to speak with an AOL representative . You can contact AOL technical support by phone at 1-800-827-6364 or by their live chat.

      Tell me how it goes!
