So for a long time, I've been using Adium as my AIM chat client, and my dad recently added leopard to our G5 iMac. Everything worked fine for a while (besides GIMP, but that's fine with me), until mysteriously, when I would get a message from somebody new (did not have an adium window already open), iChat would open itself and hijack the message into it's window. I would close the window, then the following messages would come through on adium just fine. I just became fed up with it, and trashed iChat completely, the App is deleted, but now I am mysteriously getting pop up messages instead, as seen here, keep in mind, this is after I killed iChat.

Anybody have similar problems or ideas on how to fix this? Thanks a lot anybody who tries.

-Sean

That's weird stuff there -- I advise you post that on Apple's ichat support page.

Could be a Trojan -- I was attacked by a new unnamed Trojan which crashes your Mac and still have the file ...

seriously? are you sure it was a trojan?

and i too suggest reporting it to apple or to the ichat support page.



Ever get frustrated with your mac? Just go work on Windows for an hour, then see how good you have it.
