First of all, I have a suggestion: take advantage of the free AIM service, but don't use the AIM program. It's slow, inefficient, takes up too much space, and installs spyware on your computer. Instead, use Trillian. Trillian is another free IM program that allows you to communicate with people through AIM, YIM, MSN, or IRC.

First of all, follow the following link to sign up for a screenname, and get your AIM password:

Once you have your screename, click on the following link to download trillian:


click "download now" on the page above, and install the program.

Ok, thanks!

And can I hide it from my parents? :dazed:

Just place it in a folder your parents never open.

Right, and make sure you delete the shortcuts to trillian from your desktop and start menu.
