I got this new AIM, the one with the games and stuff. Its really annoying I think, anyway to downgrade? For some reason sometimes when people IM, it switches to that IM box and its really annoying because you'll be typing something then it switches. Anyway to make it more like the previous version???

I would stay clear of AIM. Use a third party program instead, try Miranda.

I say this because AIM has yet another exploit released that allows for remote code execution. All someone has to do is send u a message. That's all, and u won't even know it. :D

gAIM is the best 3rd party AIM program. It only has one skin for Windows but a whole bunch for Linux. The default skin is kinda gay so that's why I don't use it in Windows. I had it on my Linux box.
