Cookies would only effect your ability to stay logged into the site. You could check Internet Options and make sure that IE is set to refresh page on each visit.

If I delete the cookies from this site, or any site, all that happens is I have to log back in. Cookies are only necessary for keeping one logged into a site. Temporary Internet files not being deleted can hinder the state of the page being loaded, and will sometimes cause it to be loaded in the state it was in when last loaded, but not cookies, leastwise, not ever in my experience has a cookie caused such a thing.
A cookie (also tracking cookie, browser cookie, and HTTP cookie) is a small piece of text stored on a user's computer by a web browser. A cookie consists of one or more name-value pairs containing bits of information.
The cookie is sent as an HTTP header by a web server to a web browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server. A cookie can be used for authentication, session tracking (state maintenance), storing site preferences, shopping cart contents, the identifier for a server-based session, or anything else that can be accomplished through storing textual data.
Most modern browsers allow users to decide whether to accept cookies, and the time frame to keep them, but rejecting cookies makes some websites unusable.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)
A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

What I would do is try using IE and see if it loads sites faster than AOL and if it does, or if loading sites causes AOL to crash, then I would use IE, otherwise, stick with AOL if you like it. AOL crashes at least half the time I load a site with it and the other half of the time, it takes a long time to actually load the site and many I know have the same problem with it as I do. But if you don't, that is great. I always have AOL loaded and connected but I do all my web browsing with IE.
