    I used iChat with AIM. My brother is doing the same. He somehow got a bug in AIM that sends those links saying "Check out my profile"
    I STUPIDLY clicked on it and also logged in. I KNOW. :mad: Which I'm sure gave it all of my info. I was able to still use iChat normally with a notification every once in a while saying that I was logged in at two locations. Just a few minutes ago I was kicked off altogether and cannot log back in. I just changed my AIM password but that didn't help. What can I do?

    Even after changing the password that still happens? Are you sure your password was changed successfully?

    @raison: Yeah it was successful. I got an e-mail notification and everything.

    @thegoldenmackid I know it's an AIM error.


    What should I do?

    I'd contact AOL, see if they could do anything. If not, get a new AIM account.
