I have AIM 4.7 on my beige G3 running 9.2, and whenever I restart the machine and open AIM, it freezes. I've played around with disabling extensions and whatnot, but the only workaround I've found so far is to delete the AIM file from my computer and reinstall it, which is, needless to say, inconveinent and stupid. ANybody else experiencing problems of a similar nature? Anybody have any ideas/fixes?
