    :angry1: :angry1: :angry1: I've been messing with IM stuff for about an hour now. I downloaded Trillian and set up my accounts and I can IM my brother through Trillian. But I can't make it work through the forums! I only care about AIM and Yahoo because that's what most people have. When I try AIM it says I have to have MSN Messenger installed on my puter. If I click on someone's [​IMG] it goes to another screen (a Yahoo screen) that says it will open an IM window, but nothing happens? This is confusing, I've never IM'ed before :confused:

    you'd probably be better off downloading Aol Instant Messenger than Trillian. When I used it it was a bit more complex than AIM or YIM.
