 I guess it is already downloaded but how can I change the username and the password. This computer was given to me and it always says incorrect nickname or password.....

Are you having trouble logging into the system? Or an gaim?

Okay, so then you are having issues logging into a network with the application gaim.

gaim is used to connect to numerous messaging networks, you will need to contact the network in which you are having trouble, to have them reset your password. This can normally be done via a "Reset Password" link on the networks website.

For example:

AIM - https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/opr/opr.psp
Yahoo - http://edit.yahoo.com/config/eval_forgot_pw?new=1&.done=&.src=&partner=&.intl=us
