First of all, welcome!

There are great programs that utilize AIM.

Ramble Instant Messenger
Ramble Instant Messenger

As a heads up, searching first will save you time as sometimes it takes longer to receive a response than finding results of a search. Welcome to the forums

I just installed Ramble IM last night - it's free and works with AOL IM. Works like a champ so far, although I haven't used it much yet. Link is here:

I can't put up the link, since I'm a forum newbie - but just google "Ramble IM" and you'll find it.

Unfortuantly, Verichat requires a license key to even operate (outside the trial). You can't share one as well. It looks for it when logging on and will kick off the other while doing it.

IM+ from ShapeServices (can get off of Handango) is great. It allows you to use multiple services at once (AOL, Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc...) and be logged on in more than one location.

IM's were VERY fast. Very close to being on the computer. It's not free ($45 one time) but you should try the trial. If you use IM alot, this is definately worth it!
