I don't want AIM or AIM pro to come on automatically.
When I turn on my machine AIM and AIM pro and live messanger come on automatically. The screen I get forces me to sign in to my AOL account as if I was travelling. I don't want that to happen. Also, can I use the video chat feature with just AIM? or do I need AIM pro?
Re: 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
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
