    A few days ago, I had AOL desktop error 104. that time, I tried to uninstall and install the program again and again. but it did not help me.
    Later, I had called My friend. she is a computer technician.

    she told me, this can be due to the virus.

    So I did scan my computer with the Mcafee and founded almost 5 malware into my pc.

    Once I removed them. right after that, my AOL was working fine.

    Let’s check the system compatibility. Be sure, your computer is compatible with AOL desktop software.

    If we talk about the minimum requirement for AOL desktop software. You need to have following things.

    1. Required Operating system- minimum Windows 7 or mackintosh 10.0.01
    2. Your computer should be built in with at least 266MHZ (dual-core) processor.
    3. Now if we talk about memory and storage. You need at least 512MB hard drive space to install the program, and 1 GB to execute it properly.
    4. Also, you need 1024*768 resolution for the display.

    So if your computer doesn’t match this requirement. I would not be possible to install the AOL desktop program. So you should forget about installing the program for now and focus on upgrading the computer. This will help you in resolving the issue.
