Aim freezing on Windows 7 64 bit help!

I got my new computer last week from Dell. I have checked yahoo answers and googled and done everything people suggested. When i sign on aim, it would be fine but once i try to send a message, it would freeze and then Aim would close the program.

I had my neighbor who is good with computers and he came over and he still could not find out the problem and he downloaded a bunch of different versions to make it work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try a free alternative like Pidgin:

Download Pidgin 2.7.0 - FileHippo.com

Pidgin, Trillian, etc all can interface with AIM. I prefer Trillian myself.

Not sure why you think Firefox doesn't work for Youtube, you may be missing a plugin...
