    Reinstalled windows. Did not format drives. AIM not responding.

    What the title says.

    I went to aim.com and tried to redownload it. It went through as normal but immediately when it finishes downloading I get an error that looks something like this.

    DJKAJFSKLDJFAKLSJDFKLASDKLASD - Not win 32 capable.

    Unfortunately I can't seem to get the error to repeat itself now, but aim still is not working.

    What did I do?

    Hi! Thank you for contributing nothing towards solving the answer to my problem!

    I have two computers. Both on a router. Upstairs one works, this one does not. This one did until I reinstalled windows, now it's goofed up.

    YES ITS DEFINITELY MY CRAPPY ISP THAT IS THE PROBLEM.

    Did you download an old Windows95 or some other version by mistake?

    Have you tried to uninstall it first, then go back and reinstall it?

    Yeah. I did this about 30 times last night. I also tried downloading the windows 95 version "just to see" in case it had any different effects.

    Well, aim is working now. Last night when downloading, the download would mysteriously STOP for no given reason. I was downloading one other item at the time last night, and it kept running fine. But aim just kept stopping. Even after restarting twice, halfway through the 6 meg download it just died. I don't know why. This morning it went through fine. Considering I tried downloading this at 5 am, and it is now 9 am, I don't know what could of went wrong. But anyway, it decided to download today and is working fine.

    I guess the first 17 times I tried downloading it it didn't download fully, because sometimes I got lucky and it said download complete, YET I got this error message. wtf?

    Maybe that is the problem.

    You don't download your operating system unless you are using some free POS that ends up causing you to take up more time doing normal taks then if you went down to the store and paid 99 bucks for a real OS.

    If you really want help you should a) use a legit OS - not something downloaded, b) state what OS you are using and c) state other system spec etc

    AIM is the free messenger service and should not be confused with AOL's ISP offerings. I have AIM because of 2 or 3 friends but do not have AOL isp.

    I you installed Windows XP (it was Windows XP, right?) and then did what was necessary to update it to SP2, it is entirely possible that the Windows Firewall is your problem. Go into the Networking settings and turn it off.

    Oh... thanks. Learned something. Speaks volumes as to how much attention I give to that company.

    ermm. I wouldn't necessarily suggest turning it off although I guess for the most part ICF is pretty useless as long as you are using a router, which I think he stated he is doing.

    Try http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ - For users who don't understand how to protect their computer this is probably best browser for them to use
    http://www.microsoft.com/athome/secu...e/default.mspx - Excellent spyware detector

    http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html Another spyware detector though I have heard it is not as good as it used to be.
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ Another good one.

    Please note however that I have never used either products as I've never needed them however most people do have spyware and adware on their machines and it does cause numerous frustrations. The above applications will help detect, clean and/or prevent them in most cases.

    My suggestion was for diagnostic purposes. If the problem goes away, that was the problem. He said he re-installed Windows, which means he now has a boatload of default settings with which he might be unfamiliar. Re-installing Windows because a single program is failing is like having a leg amputated to cure a corn. The solution brings more problems than existed before the cure.
