    I'm using 5.9 (classic version). Does this (message above that cheater wrote) mean that I'm at risk? I thought AIM is supposed to be safe. That thing pops up when I'm signed on AIM at times.

    the adverts in that version of aim are using unsafe activex. there is two ways around it. option 1 is the safe option. option 2 is very very unsafe.
    1. update AIM to lastest version.
    2. allow all activex

    I surgest option 1.
