    Programs often kick me off?
    Im relatively new to Macs. but after the switch, just like you guys, i will never go back. obviously never having to restart my computer is the best thing eeevvvvver, but my computer does do one thing that my PC never did.
    Often, it will pick one random program, and just kick me off. it happens with Aim, on average of once a day. which is ridiculous, and unacceptable. But it HAS happened with other programs. so i know its not just aim.
    Any suggestions?

    Specs:
    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    AIM for the Mac is known to be a bit unstable. I have had problems with the REAL AIM client for XP also. Have you tried your AIM using iChat? It's very stable and quite nice.

    What are the other programs that you are having issues with?

    i KNOW aol has done it, which i try to never use anymore, but because of work, and having the same email for 10 years, i have to. i know safari has done it a couple of times, but really not that often. those are about all the programs i use. haha.

    Safari if it hits a page it does not understand, will drop to the desktop, but I RARELY see it here. I can understand about AOL! You can check AOL Email on the Web in case you did not know.

    I'd also recommend Adium. You can add AIM, MSN, Yahoo, Jabber, ICQ, etc. screennames to it. It's awesome, I love it.
