Re: downloading AIM
From looking at the other threads in this part of the forum regarding AIM, it looks pretty bad (just a list of problems with AIM). Where do you normally download files too? Figure out the target download and run the .exe again. If you AIM installed already, remove or uninstall any instances of AIM and start from scratch. REmove any temporary files. The same way applies to MSN Messenger.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
