would it not be easier to just download the latest drivers?

I may be mistaken, but there is no downgrade path. back up anything you need, scrub the drive and/or install XP straight off the disk.

If your system meets the requirements to run Windows 7, your system should not be running that slow.

System requirements are:

•1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
•1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
•16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
•DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

If you meet these requirements, make sure you have all the up-to-date drivers for your hardware (including your graphics card). To locate drivers for specific hardware, visit the hardware's maunfacturer website and download accordingly. Hopefully updated drivers will fix the error message that AOL will not work with your graphics card. If not, and you still want to go back to XP, as mi1ex said, a complete reinstall from your original XP disk is what you'll need to do.
