I've uninstalled Skype and a few other programs I thought might have contributed to the problem, I've restored my system several times, I've re-installed AIM, I've checked my anti-virus program (Avira) to make sure it wasn't any viruses or trojans.

If anyone has had and/or knows how to fix this problem please, I'd really appreciate the help.
