Go to the folder where you installed AIM, Delete "advert.ocm" and then rename "admin.ocm" to "advert.ocm"

Question Please help with AIM

Hi, I know this original posting is from 2004, but I am replying cuz I have the same exact question as the original person who posted. I tried to follow the instructions from Pavlyk in this post, but unfortunately I do not have a folder named "advert.ocm".
So, my ad is still there. I do, however, have a folder named "admin.ocm".

Maybe Pavlyk's instructions aren't working for me because I have a newer version of AIM? I have version 5.9

Can anyone help me get rid of the ad in AIM? Thanks.

Use DeadAIM. It costs like $4.99 and has tons of features. You can get it at www.jdennis.net .

I use DeadAIM on my mom's computer. Its really nice. Above everything else it gets rid of the banner. Its definately worth the five bucks.
