    My aim is using over 29,000 K memory. I tried uninstalling and re-instaling the software, but with no positive results. Can anyone help?

    if your system runs fine, then there is nothing to worry about. As long as it runs fine and your system is not infected then dont worry.

    ok then you have a problem. What is the CPU usage? Does any other program do it? How many processes do you have running at anyone time? What is your processor speed? How much RAM do you have?

    Your Results

    CPU Usage 4%= OK!
    RAM 384= AVERAGE!
    Processor AMD Sempron= No Result, Speed Needed, eg 1.8Ghz etc.
    Running Processes 34= OK!



    Now for another question:
    • How much memory available to Windows? Check by going to Task Manager, clicking Help > About Task Manager. The box Displayed shows the amount down the bottom.
    • What is the PF Usage? Check on Performance Tab in Task Manager.

    that should be ok then. Now if it runs slow:

    There is a chance you are infected

    Do this:

    1. Please download Hijack This from my signature.
    2. Do a scan and save a logfile.
    3. Put the Log in the Security Forum

    I think you should just get rid of AOL and use MSN or something, or if you still want AOL remove it and get one of those 3 in one IM programs that can do AOL MSN and Yahoo in the one program.

    Try ad hack. I am using aim 5.9 and am only using 4,272kb of ram and no cpu cycles at all. The reason for recource guzzling is the banner ad at the top of the aim window. Are you using triton or an older version of aim.http://aftermath.dyndns.org:8888/~aimadhack/ . Thats the download page, choose the version compatible for your aim version and install it. It is not another process but becomes part of the program which filters out the window and many other aim annoyances at the same time. Let us know if that helps.
