I downloaded AIM last night. Now I am here reading posts and the page keeps disappearing. It is replaced with a page that says:

Page Not Found!
The page you are attempting to find was not found on this site.
You may have typed its location incorrectly or it may have been moved or deleted.

Try these other great sites or use AIM Search!

This is happening about every 2 minutes. WTF????????

Not sure.......I blame AIM for many of my spyware/adware problems..........Especially that annoying "Weather Bug" program........There might be someone who can give you more help under General- Urban Commandos http://ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=1&f=124. Hope that helps. ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=1&f=124

Dude, the install ASKS you if you want to install some extra bullshit. If you PAYED ATTENTION, you can prevent that shit from installing.

Remove aim now. They got a new EULA where they can take anything you say in a conversation and use it as they see fit.

+1

Uninstall it, then re-install it but this time: DON'T click on all the extra bullshit such as weather bug, etc...

I PAID attention, but I am not the most computer literate person in the world. My ex did all the computer stuff. I DID choose not to install some stuff, but I left Weatherbug. Thanks for the attitude.


I uninstalled weatherbug, updated and then ran ad-aware and spybot again, and re-booted, and it seems to be OK now. Thanks for the help!

I guess I’ve sorta figured out what you guys are talking about.

I kept wondering how downloading a page from a C&R vendor could cause such problems!

IE sucks...get Mozilla as your browser. I also have gaim, which is an IM service that uses your AIM screen name. It gives you less problems than AIM.
