    AIM Notification Problem (Windows XP, AIM v5.2.3292)

    First let me tell you my problem. Just the other day I noticed that when I was talking on AOL instant messenger, that when someone instant messaged me, their "IM" box didn't blink to notify me of their communication. Now, two days later I am still facing this problem. I never changed any options or anything. Coincidentally enough my internet has also been very faulty as well, losing connection every 5 minutes or so for a minute at a time. I am kind of at a loss of what to do. Now I know you smart computer geniuses out there are immediately going to suggest that I have a very old version of AIM and I should update. I won't do that, the new version is very advertisement-oriented and annoying. I have been using this version for two years and am very content with it. Does anyone have anything to suggest? Thanks.

    -Ben

    Run the Disk Cleanup utility (Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup) and dump your temporary internet files and see if that helps.

    If Doc's suggestion does not work, check out FileForum | Aim Ad Hack. This program disables ads in AIM. It is updated regularly for new AIM versions. Aim Ad Hack 4.12 claims to work for AIM version 5.9.3861. You could update AIM to something newer that may work better and still not be bothered by the ads.
