Everytime I open an IM window I get the following error: "AOL Instant Messanger enountered a problem and needs to xlose. We are sorry for the inconvenience". Then the program terminates. I am not sure what happened. I ran Ad aware last night before I went to bed and this morning I started AIM and it has been doing this ever since. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but I get the same problem. I ran hijack this and this is what I got:

I was actually able to repair this problem shortly after I posted this help message. Download hijackthis at http://www.majorgeek...wnload3155.html. Post what it finds here. I had a nasty piece of spyware on mine that was causing it. If I remember correctly it was one of those so called handy search bars that get installed on your machine.

To the original poster, these are setting off alarm bells with me:

R3 - URLSearchHook: HyperSearchHook - {FD2180CB-C008-48B5-B832-3AA2A92C12FB} - C:\Program Files\Common Files\Hyperbar\HyperbarSS3.dll

O2 - BHO: REALBAR - {4E7BD74F-2B8D-469E-C0FF-FD60B590A87D} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\Real\Toolbar\realbar.dll

O3 - Toolbar: REALBAR - {4E7BD74F-2B8D-469E-C0FF-FD60B590A87D} - C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\Real\Toolbar\realbar.dll

Nasties often like to lurk in the Common Files directory. You might want to check if these guests are uninvited.

Edit: Not enough coffee yet, just saw your 2nd post. Good catch. ;-)
