    I don't know how you use Win2k...I had it on my comp for like 3 hours then DL'd XP cause my CD wouldn't work and Win2k blows.


    Unistall and reinstall AIm if you have too.

    aim might be ancient, but i just like the classic interface. i got used to WIN2K, so i just change my XP computers to classic.
