    Is there a way to hide the awy msg taskbar thing on the bottom because everytime my dad uses my comp he closes everything!, he always closes the away msg and people im me and he just closes them and i lose important msgs, I want to hide the away msg so he won't close it.

    Are there ways to like set a password or just hdie it on the bottom rite?

    Try hiding the away icon by right clicking the task bar/properties/. Tick 'hide inactive icons' then customise. Now find the icon & set it too 'always hide'.

    Yes, there is.
    Go to your AIM preferences, and in the "Buddy List" menu, you should find a checkbox that says "Hide taskbar button when Buddy List window is minimized."

    This works for the away msg window as well. :)
