    Re: Unistalling AIM

    Hi John:
    From Netscape Help:
    Question:

    How can I remove AOL Instant Messenger?

    Answer:

    In order to avoid receiving AOL Instant Messenger "Registration" or "Sign
    On" prompts:

    1. On the AIM sign-on screen, click the Setup button
    2. Select the Misc tab
    3. Uncheck "Start Netscape AIM when Windows starts."

    This way, the Instant Messenger program will not load unless you explicitly
    launch it.

    To completely remove it (unsupported):

    For Windows 95/98 and Windows NT:

    In Windows Explorer:

    1. Remove AIM from the Personal Bookmark folder.
    2. Delete launch.aim from every user profile.
    3. In "...CommunicatorProgramAim", delete the "AIM"
    folder and the subfolder "sounds" and all contents.
    4. Run Regedit:

    Edit | Find - type AIM. Remove all references.
    Edit | Find - type in AOL. Remove all references to AIM only.
    5. Restart your computer.

    Hope this helps.
