    AOL Instant messenger can't take the hint that I DON'T want icons, whether they are IM or not. And the memory usage...do you have these problems?

    I've never had AIM use up that much memory, but I don't hardly ever use AIM though. I think I might have read somewhere that a certain version had that problem... not sure which version though. Those icons are annoying too, that's the first thing I take care of after installing it. Start Menu (twice) and Favorites folder... very annoying! :mad:

    What he said ^^ :D
    I've never seen AIM use that much RAM, even with DeadAIM installed. It might be a memory leak. Try updating to the latest stable version.

    And yes, the icons are VERY annoying. Everytime I install a new version, I only hope that it doesn't put those AOL Broadband icons all over the place...but it does. :rolleyes:

    If it weren't for people in school, I wouldn't be using this junk. MSN Messenger is far superior in my opinion.

    Agreed...MSN 6 flung them to the number one spot in usage. Those "leaks" paid off. I wonder how many of your school people use MSN as well as AOL...

    Not too many...and they don't switch even when I tell them it's better.
    Their loss... *shrug*

    I agree, MSN is much better. AIM is like Realplayer, likes to take over the whole computer!
