tech support needed

  I need some help.

I've had the same ICQ version since I got my latest computer over a year and a half ago. Suddenly last week I get a popup about ICQ not being installed properly. I close the popup without clicking anything and the next time I loaded ICQ it had automatically updated itself to version 10 which is huge and horrible.

I uninstall and reinstall my old previous version but every time I log out and back in I get the same popup with the automatic update. I can't get rid of this for some reason.

I'm at a loss as to why I seem to be the only one this is happening to and I have no idea how to fix this.

I totally gave up on the single-install versions of all the IM programs years ago.  The ICQ/AOL/MSN programs got so huge and annoying that I uninstalled all of them.  Now for ICQ I just use Pidgin.

I use trillian for about 12 years now.   It have some IM.   I know that Kandle had the same issue and revert to an older verson.  maybe she can answer you.
