I am a new AIM user, and was trying to change the settings so it wouldn't pop up everytime I turned on the computer. I ended up changing it so that everything would be hidden when I was "away". So then I clicked "away" and shortly after exited the program without coming back from "away". Now I can't find the icon to sign on to AIM anywhere. I don't have AOL so I can't sign on that way. I tried doing Google Searches, and even went to the AIM support page, and can't find any information on how I can sign back in to my account. How do I do this? Thanks!

Have you tried clicking - Start > Programs and looking for it in the list? If you have and it isn't there, follow this route - right click Start and select explore, select Program Files, then AIM and then you should find the little man with 'aim.exe' underneath. Right click on 'the man' and select 'Send to > and then choose Desktop. Your little man will now be a shortcut to AIM from your Desktop! If you want that shortcut in your Quick Launch bar, right click on him on the Desktop and drag him to the bar and then choose 'copy here'

Good luck
