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

You can use the standard alone messanger by going to www.aim.com and download the software. Also, you can use instant messaging if you sign into your mail through the website mail.aol.com From there, look for the yellow running man icon on the right. You can then click on that and sign in AIM (it stands for Aol Instant Messaging).

My facebook chat shows people online but when i try to chat with them it says they are offline when they are definitely online.


Hi,
Simply put, Facebook Chat is not a real time instant messenger like MSN or AIM - complex, I know, I've written a simple article about it here:
http://techblissonline.com/facebook-messenger/
Basically, a friends Facebook status isn't updated in real time.

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

Activate your Windows messenger program or download Yahoo, Aim, or any of the instant messenger programs. Simply activate the video. Of course you must connect to someone else to vie/chat with your friends.

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.
