    Well you can uninstall AIM, install and run the registry cleaner in Ccleaner found HERE,. If you want to dive in and uninstall it manually:
    Delete AIM registry entries.
    To remove the registry files, open Registry Editor by running the Regedit command and then delete the entries given below:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentV ersion\AppPaths\aim.exe
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\MIME\Database\Cont entType\application/x-aim
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\AOLInstantMessenge r.ConfigFile
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{BAEB32D0-73 2D-11d2-8BF4-0060B0A4A9EA}

    After completely uninstalling AIM download and install a fresh copy of the file. Let us know how it goes?!
