From the Forums
A user in the forum details it further:
I'm having a very frustrating problem with my AIM, as are at least 5 of my friends. Hey there, you guys have a great site! It just knocks us all off at once! Sigh.
Quite often, when I'm online and talking to my buddies, someone's AIM will crash, promptly taking the rest of us offline as well. We all have AOL Instant Messenger Version 5.2, but I don't know if it's the version of AIM, because it's done it with every version I've had. It usually doesn't knock us off the internet all together, just AIM. So I'm just hoping someone may have some insight into what's going on here.
We all also have a dial-up connection, and none of my friends with a cable connection have these issues. Thank you. It's been going on for quite awhile, even after upgrading to a higher version.
I appreciate it!

AIM or MS Instant Messenger
My son seems to need to use AIM instant messenger, but I have been told this could be the cause of redirects or highjacks i have experienced. Also I have in my add remove programs something called AccountLogon what is this ??
Try Gaim, I don't trust AOL because they are in it for the money, GAIM is open source and free and supports AIM, ICQ, Jabber, Yahoo, MSN and others all in the same program.
I was told this gives a open port for someone to gain access, is this a problem and should I delete AIM and disable Microsoft Instant Messenger?
Help with AOL Instant Messenger
I went home for the weekend, & took my laptop w/ me & when I came back & tried to use AIM, it would load but very slowly, or sometimes, it would not load at all ("Buddy List cannot load" error). Other than that, you might wanna use hijackthis and see if anything foreign is on the comp, that might be using up resources and slowing down the system, along with running adaware and spybot just to be safe.
Or, is there something wrong w/ the EtherNet or AIM servers?
My AOL Instant Messenger was working totally fine all last week.
I'm currently hooked up to the Internet via an EtherNet connection (college campus). Any help is appreciated.... When it does load, everything seems to load & move rather slowly (Like people's profiles loading & sending messages).
I can search webpages just as well as I did before & also download things just as well. Could this possibly be blocked by a firewall just recently? I've tried reinstalling AIM, but that didn't work.

If you're the one trying to do the harassing, stop now. If you're gettin harassed or somethin, just report the username to AOL.

AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
ok i use AIM alot. How can you change it so that instead of AIM saying that my service is Uncomfirmed Internet so that it says my ISP? You know how when u move your mouse over the names on your buddylist it says how long they've been on, their ISP, etc.
If thats even possible.... Thanx in advance.
AIM AOL Instant Messenger
I've being using it for ages and have never been with AOL: it can be downloaded from click here.Or you could use something like Trillian which lets you chat to people on AOL Instant Messenger, ICQ, and MSN Messenger through the one program.
This may seem a strange request, but does anyone know as to whether AIM can be downloaded and used indepently of AOL i.e if AOL is not your ISP, please.

AOL instant messenger
can i get any input on this?JimMod Edit: Links removed for the saftey of other members. click on it and nothe visually happens, then it deletes itself from desktop.
Got a link in AIM today and it was when the URL loads it wants to dowload a file, the file that actually downloads is named checkit.exe.
None of the virus scanners or ad ware or anything else seems to detect anything going on. and continuosly send the link to you all your friends on the buddy list. I got a virus almost exactly the same as that one the first thing i did was log off aim so my friends did not get the same thing then reloaded aim and have had no truble since
Instant Messenger for LAN's??
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone know of a good instant messenger program that can exclusively be used within LAN's? We are looking for a free or cheap solution at work that will allow our tech support staff to communicate with each other without the communication travelling over the internet.
We have internet connections on all our PC's but the info that we may be discussing over the messenger is private and confidential and cannot travel over public internet servers.

Aol Instant Messenger help
Same error. Help!
I then tried to reconnect numerous times with a "server error" I re-installed it.
The aimpro.exe client cannot even download the information from the Aim server. It's appearing to not be able to connect to the aim server. And it still doesn't work. Just to be sure i went to ebuddy.com and tried to log onto Aim..
Restarted my pc, And instaleld The Aim pro client instead of the Aim 6 Client. I then uninstalled it.
About 20 Minutes Ago i was talking on Aim and got disconnected.
AIM just tells me that "A server error occurred" and MSN gives me the error code 80072efd. It was finally fixed but it was a bit of a hassel.
Over the last two days I have been unable to run either AIM or MSN Messenger.
I am using a cingular aircard to connect to the internet which had a problem this past weekend. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both programs. I have run various virus and spyware scans and I still cannot figure out why they will not run. Any ideas?
ads in instant messenger
anyone know how to get rid of those damn advertisements and commercials?
Yahoo Instant Messenger
I'm having trouble keeping my YIM online. I've tried YIM Vista Beta, 8.5, as well as 9, which is what I use now. I have Webroot Internet Essentials installed...it does anti-virus and anti-spyware. I checked my firewalls.
Trillian.cc comes to mind
Pidgeon (formerly GAIM)
Several more you can choose from. I may have also tried 8, I don't remember. See if you get kicked off one of those in Yahoo! IM.
hmmm, try using another chat client all together that is compatible with multiple IM Protocols.
I've messed with the connection of YIM, but nothing seems to work. I'll log on, and it will continuously kick me off every ten minutes or so. I seem to be the only one I know who has this problem.
Nothing seems to fix the problem. I currently have Version 9 installed on my Vista 64-bit, but I've tried various versions and they all do it. Any help?
