    Why when I click on a thread does aol instant messenger open on my screen?I don't have AIM on my desktop {networked computer} This just started a few days ago. I go to msconfig and remove it and have Startup Cop kill it. and whenever I log on Sno-Fans and click a thread it installs again,Highly iritating me. Do you have any ideas?

    That's weird, cuz I have AIM, MSN, ICQ and Yahoo all running, and I've never had any of them open when visiting this site.

    Try deleting all cookies and temp internet files, and temp folders. Uninstall IM if its in your control panel's add/remove list. If none of that works, uninstall/reinstall IE6 or whatever you may be using.

    I hope you're not using a Macintrash......

    I know that if you do have that program installed the site will open it. Same thing with MSN Messenger.

    I can see msn messenger, but not AOL. I know the site is set up to use msn. Don't worry though, when the new forum arrives, these annoying features will be gone.
