    I have installed AOL Instant Messanger. when i boot my computer into windows xp it loads in the system tray, but when i move my mouse over to it it dissapears and i have to load it again.

    Once loaded it is fine and it only does it when i first boot into windows xp.

    MSN Messanger does the same think but that loads twice in the tray and one dissapears.

    I hope someone can help as i sometimes forget to load it up after i have booted into windows and its realy annoying when people call you to tell you to turn aol im on........;)

    Hope someone can help

    Do you have any type of firewall running? I've noticed I only get that problem when I have norton firewall running, my fix was to put AIM in the startup group...this causes one of them to go away bu the other to stay

    yet the problem goes away completely if I don't have norton firewall set to start automatically so I think that might have a lil something to do with it
