I did have my screename up, but somebody hacked into my AIM account. Somehow they figured out my password. My computer this morning, alerted me that I was signed on AIM on 2 different computers. I only have 1.

That could be a windows XP problem.
Sometimes it can run 2x the same program without you even knowning.

OR

The logoff didn't quite complete last time you logged off so it thinks you are logged in twice.
Wouldn't worry about it - yet. Logout and back in and see if it gives the error again.

Thanks for your help, I'll try that. It seemed to fix the problem- no generated messages.
