In regard to the HTTP 403 error, please clear your cache and cookies (in the AOL Desktop software) and try again. I also would suggest upgrading to the latest version of AOL (AOL Desktop 9.7) and try to reproduce the issue. To upgrade, go to: http://daol.aol.com/software/aoldesktop97/

Clearing the cache seemed to do the trick and my aol home page now comes up as normal.

I do the normal disc cleaning etc and then decided to open up the aol clean up tools and after clearing the cache, it's fine. Hope this helps.
