I'm new to this, so pardon my stupidity. My children use a computer for instant messaging (AIM 5.9). The computer was running real slow, a lot of pop ups, etc. I installed Spybot S&D and now whenever they try to start a Chat window from within AIM, a page fault error in module KERNEL32.dll appears and AIM is shutdown. I uninstalled Spybot (after restoring all clean ups) and re-installed AIM, but the problems persists. I also removed all protection from spyblaster and the problem persists. I realize that this .dll file is associated with ActiveX, but it seems that AIM chats depend on it. Can someone help me out of this predicament?
