    It's badass, it's a Dell...has Windows 7, I love it.

    So right after setting it up I went ahead and installed Firefox (I prefer it over IE) and AIM messenger. For some reason though, ever since I installed AIM my computer keeps freezing the program, then it started freezing the internet. I used AIM for years on my old Dell laptop with no issues. Should I uninstall it or is it something I'm doing? Thanks for any help OT.

    Btw, inspiron 15? That's what I got for my kid.

    FF works great. There will never be an AOL prduct on that computer, ever.

    I'm still waiting on my "home use" Win7 disc, but Trillian works fine on Vista, don't see why it wouldn't on win7
