First off congrats on your graduation present, your parents buy good gifts. I didn't keep AIM on long enough to experience such problems. May I suggest you use http://www.adiumx.com/ for all your instant messaging needs?

I have yet to use bittorrent on my Mac but you may wanna try out Bit Tornado. Good luck.

if it came with an installer and has an uninstaller use that....but basically just drag the file from your apps folder to the trash. this method will leave a few straggling files which in total may add up to 1 or 2mb and you dont really need to bother them....if you want to bother with them do a forum search on deleting files

Personally I love Adium. I have it on my MB and the tabbed windows combined with built in spell check mean I will not be leaving it any time soon. If only they made a WinXP version for when I am on my desktop...

While Adium is no doubt the best chat client I have found for OSX, on the Windows side I use a program called Trillian . Between these two programs they make sure that none of my platforms are infested with anything from AOL. Trillian offers tabbing, I believe spellcheck, as well as wikipedia links to uncommon words right in the conversation window. If you are still using XP and need a chat client then Trillian is the closest thing to Adium you will find.
