When ever I run the application it quits shortly after the buddy list appears. I have tried to restart the program, restart the computer, re-install beta 6 and install beta 5. NOTHING WORKS. I tried to post this on AIM's message board, but my thread doesnt show up...that and I only see threads up till Dec 11th. Through the 7 days since I downloaded it, the program worked for about 1 day following three days after the first snafu, but shortly resumed its malfunction and hasn't cleared up obviously. Another issue is that even though I can search the web, now I am unable to even to connect (keeps saying "connection failed"). I dont have a firewall, but my parents have a slow satellite internet, but faster than our old dial up. I also noticed that YIM is having problems connecting. It is a wireless router, which I have tried to unplug and reset, but no avail. Any help would be APPRECIATED!!!
