Ah, well if you're having other issues then perhaps they're all related.  Unfortunately for me, Pidgin is the only program to have had any issues in the 1 year I've had my OS installed.  Good luck with your format, I'll keep hoping someone knows the reason behind my problem.

Thanks,
Evan

Hi Evan,
I noticed the same thing and have not been able to find the settings. Even
after a full uninstall and all that jazz. I was assuming it was in the
registry as well. Being as I am using a fairly new laptop (2 weeks old), I
have noticed a few other programs not working (and they happen to need to
connect to the internet internally as well)

I'm to the point where I'm ready to do reformat. :(
