G'day Virusyn, I suggest you look in your Applications folder and make sure iChat.app is where it should be, then try launching it from there to see if it starts normally.

When it loads, nothing shows up on the screen? Did you wait till it was done loading and then look at the top toolbar and see if iChat had opened? Another way to check would be to select the Force Quit option from the Apple menu (click on the blue Apple icon in the top left) and see if iChat is a running program.
