Default Help with AIM

Whenever I try to startup AIM, it has this error:

The AOL software cannot startup correctly. Please try again, restart your computer, or reinstall the software.

Error starting: ee://aol/imApp
Error code: 71

just be sure to run a search after uninstalling for anything aim related and delete all the remaining files.
