Default Gaim

So, I was trying to add a friend on, and I typoed his name, and added someone else. Someone who hasn't been on for like, seven, eight years? Who knows. Anyways, I deleted him and added my real friend. The typo guy, though, his ID keeps coming back. Delete it a million times, restart Gaim, restart computer. Uhm, really, it shouldn't be this difficult to get rid of it, but it is. It's not any severe problem, just an annoyance.

Thanks.

LoL yah trillian owns. I don't like GAIM too much on windows. The Linux version of GAIM is a lot better. All in all, just uninstall GAIM, and download Trillian. Personally, I like it a lot.

The problem is that GAIM stores stuff locally and updates from the server.

GAIM is still better than trilliam though

Gaim re-installed, the problem is still there. Also, I don't like Trillian, so I won't use it.
