He's really getting frustrated. He just got his 20" iMac G5 today, after I convinced him to switch to Mac. But, AIM quits unexpectally all the time. Now I know AIM isn't the greatest program in the world, but I've been using it for years and years and I've never had this problem. Myself, I just bought an iMac back in September, and I've never had problems with it crashing. As a college student, AIM is logged on probably 18/24 hours a day. WHy is his AIM crashing every 5 minutes, when basically I have the same computer and it's worked fine since day 1? He's tried reinstalling and repairing permissions, restarting, ect. He does not like iChat and won't settle for an AIM client. (PC user..) Thanks guys.
