    I downloaded Messes beta, but now I'm unable to uninstall it. I can't delete the application and it won't let me uninstall because it says I'm not connected to the internet. Anyone know how I can reinstall iChat?

    From within the beta itself go to the "Messages" menu and select the option "Uninstall Messages Beta", this will guide you through the process to uninstall Messages and reinstall iChat.

    It will not let me uninstall. When I select "Uninstall Message Beta," it tells me I'm not connected to the internet, even though I clearly am...

    I tried a few different things I saw on both MacRumors and the Apple Support Forums. I had the same problem. I tried three different wifi networks, I tried changing my DNS to Google Public DNS (8.8.8.8) and still no luck. Finally, I signed into my VPN which makes me appear as though my traffic is generated in Seattle (I live in South Korea) and BOOM, it worked immediately. Hope this helps.
