Whats AIM got to do with Windows ? Can you open My Computer ?
Can you Scandisk or Defrag.
Stand still for a moment as this needs a lot more info.I wish i could use attachments.
By the way Why do you and so many not see the importance of
W version ???
Please drop by soon so we know this isn't a joke post.

Talking Whoe

Just a dang minute,is this a home computer ? or
Are trying to do things at work you shouldn't ?

You still haven't given Windows version,why ?
What is word doc ? Do you mean Wordpad or MSWord ?
If your really an administator You should know all this before you become one.

Really now lets get this straight and start useing proper reference.
Are you a 1 home system user or
part of a Network.If it"s a home pc than your not an admin ,
your a home user.
It makes a big difference to trouble shoot,so lets get it straight.

Yeah, its a bad thing to say but it seems to need to be done. Then uninstall AIM and install MSN!

The last bit obviously isn't required.

AIM is good. The ISP sucks, but their messager is good.

No. I haven't seen the GUI, since I use it every damn day. -_-

The options are actually pretty good. If there was some way to combine :

MSN's ability to change names
MSN's games
MSN' GUI
AIM's Invisible Mode feature, yet you can still send people messages without having to become visible again
AIM's Away Messages feature
One of AIM's add on applications, DeadAIM for being able to log into multiple accounts and also log all convos, including pictures.
YIM's Offline Messaging feature (aka, one user is offline, you can leave him a message that he will see when he next get's online)

... You'd have a perfect messager.

There isn't, apart from a few cover ups of mistakes MS made with making it.
