I have just converted from AOL dial up to Optonline (yeah!). I canceled AOL but we have their free account. I have been trying to set my daughter to use her AIM. But once she tries to IM a buddy the window is filled with the following:

When receiving an IM the sound comes up that we are being IM'ed but nothing is written. When we try to IM to someone we type a word & click send. I hear a slight beeping (blocking?) sound but nothing shows up.

I have uninstalled & reinstalled countless times. I have turned Norton firewall off & on. I have done SpyBot, Adaware & Norton scans. I am at my wits end with this!

Any & all help would be greatly appreciated!

Have you tried Trillian Basic? It is a multi-client freeware replacement to the AIM chat client. No ads or spyware.
You can also look in the Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools for error messages. This may give you a clue as to what is going on.

I have just discovered this is a major problem. I cannot print anything. What comes in print preview is more html stuff that is 39 pages long. Please help anyone? I cannot print any of my banking stuff or any of the kids projects. I don't know if this is a virus or what? Thank you.

Problem is resolved. I did a google search & after 2 days I finally found my problem. At some point, I lost my html editor. Perhaps during the conversion of IE7. In any event, once I learned how to add an editor into my inernet properties I was fine. Everything is running smoothly again & my daughter can print out her stuff now.

Happy Holidays.
