You didn't write if you uninstalled and reinstalled or if you have a firewall that stops it.
Since I can't support IM programs in general, all I can offer is http://gaim.sourceforge.net/
Hello, and thank you in advance for your help.
I just recently moved back into college. A few days ago after entering my password into AIM, the program would freeze and would not connect. I have cleared out anything with Ad-aware and with HijackThis, but nothing seems to be helping. Any suggestions would be most appreciated as it is driving me bananas.
