So AOL Instant Messenger killed my internet...

My web browser wouldnt route to web pages, and after systematically checking all of my programs to make sure they weren't interfering with my internet throughput, I found that any time I opened AIM the network activity spiked abnormally. Also, it was inexplicably blasting music through my speakers. I don't know if it was hosting a virus, or if someone just introduced a new feature to AIM that kills peoples' innernettes but that was the problem, and after an uninstall and a reboot my innernette is back to normal. AIM 6 users BEWARE!!!

I'm assuming that website has older versions of alot of programs? Good site to browse around on if it does... thanks for the link.

edit: which version do you prefer and why?

If you like Trillian and have not tried Digsby, give it a shot. I changed from Trillian - for me it is nicer.
