I'm using the AOL IM client, not the full AOL software that AOL subscribers use. The IM client is version 5.5.3595.

It occasionally plays music. And it occasionally puts graphics on my screen. Both of which I find annoying.

How can I block the sounds and graphics?

Thanks.

Yes . . . the ads that make music and generate graphics that jump around on my screen. I'd love to put a stop to that stuff!!!!

Haven't used Gaim, although I did experiment with Trillian last year. It worked but I didn't like it as well as the AOL IM client.

Before I abandon the AOL IM client I thought I'd ask the experts if there's a way to rid it of the annoying ads.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks for the link. I played around with the parts that seemed to be applicable but no luck killing the AOL IM client ads.

Guess I'll try gaim or try Trillian again.

Appreciate the help.
