Normal 0 Go into the messenger and go CLICK on GENERAL and then CLICK on PREFERENCE.
Then under “When I Start My Computer” and remove the check from “Automatically Start Yahoo Messenger”. Then click OK.
It should be similar in other messengers to keep it from starting when Windows starts.
Hope this helps. Bud

Can't do video chat it said that my messenger do not suport the feature


You can do a video chat only if there is a webcam configured to be used as default webcam with this Instant Messenger. To do that you must firstly have a webcam installed on the pc/laptop and then from the Options/tools in the Instant Messenger you must select Video and there select this webcam as the default webcam. Then only would you be able to do the video chat.

On AIM - the video chat option we are only able to see ourselves


I would recommend updating to the newest version of AIM nad making sure you are both on the same version. Then If that fails contactAIM support or the tech forums for help, other AIM users most likely have had this issue

I don't want AIM or AIM pro to come on automatically.


ok When you turn on your computer and it autimaticaly logs you in you need to log yourself out and then on the screen where you put your user name and password, there will be a little box thats says, save my password and there will be another one that says sign me in automaticaly. Uncheck the one that says sign you in autimaticaly. If you want to use your vidioe camera you dont need aim pro unless you have a mac then the vidioe set up process is a little for complicated

Hello my school has blocked all aim resorces. Do you know any way i can get onto aim?


You can usually use AIM on your mobile phone for free. Most mobile phones come with AIM already installed. If you have GMail you can access your AIM buddy list on there and chat just like you were signed in to AIM. There is also a web access version of AIM on their website.
