AIM won't load?

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.

Thanks Happy
Bill

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/

yes It has been uninstalled and reinstalled - and there are no firewalls up right now. I simply can not get it to go past the "enter password" part, when the new window to try and connect should open, it doesnt and I have to Close the AIM program that is not responding.

How did GAIM work out? And be sure that you have no pests found by Adaware, Spybot, Stinger, and Housecall.
