    I am attempting to access my iChat preferences to add a GTalk account. When I go to iChat->Preferences and click, I am taken immediately to the Audio/Video preferences, where I see the video of myself, bluetooth setup, etc.

    I can not figure out how to get back from here to my normal iChat preferences, or how to open my iChat preferences normally. Help is appreciated, thanks

    When you access your iChat preferences, do you see the General, Accounts, Messages, Alerts, or Video tabs under the title bar? If there is a clear oval or dot in the upper right hand corner of the Preferences window along the title bar, click it and see if the tabs appear. You'll then want to go to the Accounts tab and then click the + in the lower left to add an account.

    No, there is no oval tab at top, it is very strange. The only option is the red x circle - they yellow and green options are greyed out. Very strange
