I think I have it right. I got a pop up to update AIM, this usually isn't a problem so I updated. I then tried to install AIM Ad Hack which always removes the ads on the latest version until tonight. I have installed and reinstalled umpteen times and I am still getting the ads. Has AD hack not updated since the new AIM? I tried to reinstall the past version of aim and it would not work when I clicked on the icon so I am back to the new version! I hate Ads and I hate AOHELL. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
