    AimWDInstall.exe?

    Hey everyone,
    I just upgraded AIM to version 5.5.3572, but my firewall prompted something odd that wanted to connect to a www server on the internet. It's called AIMWDInstall.exe and its in C:\Program Files\AIM

    Anyone know what this is or what it does?

    Thanks

    Can you tell us the address of the www server? It could just be the install program trying to register itself or autoupdate (although I'm not sure - have you done the normal trojan/ad/virus scan?)

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that the aimwdinstall is part of the wildtanget program AOL included so you can play games with buddies.
