IM Giant Instant Messanger Question

Q: IM Giant Instant Messanger Question

Good day all. Is anyone familiar with IM Giant Instant Messanger? When I researched it, it said that it was a program that can "easily consolidate your Im programs" (AOL, MSN etc.) It appeared on my desktop a few days ago. The kids swear that they don't know how it got there. My computer appears to be running fine.

1. Is it spyware? Spybot, adware, and AVG haven't shown anything out of the ordinary.
2. I would like to remove it. However, I can't find it in the Add/Remove programs list. Also, there is no uninstlall associated with the program. How do I get rid of it? Thanks!


Preferred Solution: IM Giant Instant Messanger Question

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: IM Giant Instant Messanger Question

See if you can find a folder for in your programs. If you do there might be an uninstall file in it.

I am looking to develop a software that could be integrated into AOL, MSN, Skype, Gmail and Yahoo messangers.

I was wondering:

1. on what platform those IM's developed?
2. on what platform should I develop my own software, that would be easy to integrate to
those IM's?

Note: my software should be executable when installing and integrating it as part of those IM's.

Thanks for your help.

Hello, My AIM is not coming up. I have it on my computer, but it will not allow me to sign on. Every time I try to it comes up with this message: AOL INSTANT MESSINGER ERROR The AIM service can't be reached. This has been going on since the 6th. I have un-instaled it and re-instaled it though the control panel to see if that would help and I still am unable to sign on. Please if you can help come up with something to fix this, let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

I ran the english and chinese versions of QQ Chat, instant message program,
so i could talk to all my friends in china.

when i try and run QQ (Instant messanger) in windows 7, i get the error

"application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.


less than 48 hours into Windows 7.
And im already ready to stop using it, simply due to wasted time searching for compatability fixes.

Im really really trying to stick with it.
Im not really understanding how They would expect me to pay even 49.99.
its slightly faster here and there, graphics are cute... menus are.. randomly effecient. the tiny 3d FPS loss...

I would consider buying it,
IF it were backwards compatable. But its just another Vista fail atm : (
It didnt fall down 8 flights of stairs, breaking all its bones and taking friends with it.. but it still is basically fail atm : ( simple to due imcompability.

I dont feel like waiting 2 years for win7 to "catch up" in compatability.

Heh. I guess Ill buy it in a few years.

Sorry to rank. Dissapointed.

how many millions did they spend? how long has it been?

in terms of "reliability"... it gets a +2 and -3....

Are you sure this is a Win7 problem, or is it a problem on QQ Chat's end?

Hi! I got a new computer a couple of months ago and my AOL Instant Messanger was working great.

I got infected with an AIM INstant Messanger Virus

this virus makes the user send a virus link to everyone on his buddy list.
when you click on it, you download some program and you get infected immediately.
Not only does this effect AIM, but it also makes the computer more prone to ad-ware and slows down the computer

How do i get rid of this? AIMFix doesnt really do anything...

Like the title says, I'm looking for an IM client designed for 64-bit Vista. I have Trillian 3.1 right now and it works, except my system freezes for about 5 seconds when it starts up or shuts down. So are there any IM clients optimized for 64-bit (preferably all-in-ones, like Trillian)?

This problem started out as I couldn't talk with a certain person on my buddy list because they had the newer version of AIM, 5.9, and I still had the old one and AIM brought up an error message and closed the program. I decided to update to 5.9 and it worked good, except now I cannot load my buddy list on either of two computers where it's saved. It loads for a second, then says "Requested settings couldn't be saved" and deletes the entire thing. Any suggestions? A friend of mine suggested the router might have something to do with it? Thanks

I've also tried older versions, 4.7 and 5.8, they do not work. I can't even add buddies.

Hi, I am having issues with my AIM Instant Messanger. If my computer is idle for more than like 5 minutes while online, I cannot send or recieve IMs and profiles are shown to be "N/A", then AIM kicks me offline but then signs right back on. My network connection stays online the entire time, it is just my AIM that is affected. It does not happen to my Yahoo or MSN. This has been found to be very annoying because while I am "N/A" I miss IMs from people. Can this be fixed? I would really appreciate anyone's help because this has been a problem for me for a long time.

I'm having trouble using the newer version of MSN Messenger. Everytime I try to hook up on video chat, I get a page asking for my name, email address and counrty ect. for a profile I guess?

hi I wasn't sure if this was the right place to post this but I'm becoming desperate. Heres the story, my Windows XP has the latest AIM instant messenger on it, and for some strange reason it sometimes refuses to open the IM box for just my friend. Other people work, so I'm not sure if its because he's not updating his software or if it has to do with a Backdoor virus i just recently removed. Im pretty sure the virus didn't have anything to do with this since this has occurred several times before the virus showed. Please if anyone knows how i can fix this it would be a great help.

Hello Helponthe.net Community.

I have a urgent request. Here is the situation. A associate of mine has this relation that has been bothered by somebody using AOL Instant Messanger/AIM. The problem is that this person knows the relation's full name and the area in which it lives.

So I told him to call AOL and the police!

However, I have an additional idea. I have the latest full version of AIM, and I remember watching an article on TechTV about how AIM can preform "direct connections" of some sort....

My plan is to try to log the stalker's IP address and then trace it back the ISP, then give the information to the relation, so in turn it can give it to the police!

So is there any way to get AIM to some how obtain the IP of an AIM user provided they have the "direct connection" ability?

I beseach the community to heed my call for justice and peace!

I'm having troubles with AOL Instant Messanger. Everything works fine, except for my SubProfile I put into it. My SubProfile always worked before, until now. I can't load it up from my profile on my computer, nor can I enter my SubProfile maker on www.subprofile.com. When I go to the site, everything is ok until I log in with my name and password. Once I do that, it brings me to a blank page, and in the status bar it says "Connecting to site" and then it just sits there for a second, then says "Done", still with a blank page. I know its not being blocked by my Restricted Zone, because when I look into another friend's SubProfile, it loads up slow, but it works. And that friend can see my SubProfile and log into his SubProfile name fine, so I know its my computer or something. My sister is also having the same problem, she shares an internet connection with us on a router, if that helps at all. She can't log into her SubProfile name nor can load her SubProfile up either. Since you people at TechGuy know about computer settings, maybe you can help me. I ran Adaware SE Personal, Hijack This, and my Anti-Virus, and there were no problems there, so I'm pretty sure its not spyware and/or a virus. Can you guys help me? Thanks.

I have searched around in yahoo and I can't find a way to get rid of their 'toolbar" which really doesn't surprise me since Yahoo is not known for good documentation.

I am in a business where I need to have ICQ, Yahoo, MSN and Aol set up for IM's. The program that the business gave to me is called GAIM. (It holds all the IM's in one buddy box so when anyone comes on in any IM's it pops up in the box. (but you probably already knew this info ) I spoke to a web tech and he said ICQ is not a good IM because it was originally made by hackers and it is very prone to viruses. Does anyone know if this is true? He also said that I could set up all my IM's with a MSN passport except ICQ. I am just trying to find out in here what opinions you have on IM's and if they are a big threat to have them?

A:Solved: Instant Messenger question

You can use all your IMs with the exception of ICQ with MSN, but if you can't access them all at the same time. If you install a program such as Trillian, you can access them all at the same time.

As long as you follow the same precautions as you would anywhere else on the internet, they pose little more threat than other program

ICQ is an AOL subsidiary now, and has the same sort of security as AIM

i have recently bought TV Giant as i fancied a change from the regular type of games i usually play and this caught my eye. installation was fine and quick. the game then started up, got past all the manufacturer screens and got on to what looked like the loading screen, all five icons would light up to say that this has loaded then it would just shut off and go back to my desktop.

I used to have Giant AntiSpyware but it has been taken over by Microsoft.
I downloaded their new version when my subscription expired but when I installed it, it froze my computer?
I removed it and am reluctant to install it again?
Does anyone have any ideas? Or would a proprietary program be better if I purchased one? e.g. Spyware Doctor?

When I add an attachment, the image appears huge to the receiver. How do I reduce the size of the image.

Hi carol, you would need to reduce the image size in a graphics program, like Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro. Adobe Photoshop is rather expensive, but Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are arouns $100. There are free image editors out there, I just don't know the names of them, try going to http://www.download.com and look under the graphics section and there should be some editors there you could either download for free or atleast get a free trial to see if you like them. Hope I have helped.
