So it can be added if you want it. It's clear that you didn't research your question. I don't do other people's fishing. I only point to a possible solution and your new post shows... You didn't look at GAIM and more.

I've been using Easy Message now for a couple of weeks and have found it to be the easiest and most reliable client for all of AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo in a single, lightweight, package.

It doesn't have all the bells, whistles, sounds and emoticons of Trillian but, then again, it loads 5-6 times faster and uses far less RAM. In fact, it uses less RAM than any one of the proprietary clients.

Miranda seems equally lightweight but I found it to have problems with AIM connections.

Easy Message is available here.

I am a huge fan of Trillian. It's better than any individual IM client and yet lets you communicate with all of them.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
