ICQ Sign-in Problem

Hi all. I Googled for ICQ help, some came up, so did opensuse, but this is a forum, so I chose you! :slight_smile:
Anyway. I downloaded and installed ‘install_icq7.exe’ from Download.com. Signed up and I tried signing in and it didn’t, so it tried again, didn’t. I cancelled and tried a 3rd time and it blocks me from signing in! It said I’ve tried to perform this action too many times. Please try again later.

Why would someone put that into a program?!

It’s also changed, I was expecting to sign-in with an ICQ number, not using my hotmail address.

It has blocked me for 30 minutes. I have about 10 mnutes left, but I seriously doubt it will work after it unblocks me.

Please, any help at all?!

Thanx. :slight_smile:

You do realize this is not a windows operating system forum?

Why not download direct from the i c q website and ask them direct if you have issues?

If you want a linux version it’s here http://www.icq.com/download/linux/en

No. I did not… I blame Google then!

I tried contacting them, thought feedback would work with providing my email address, but they say they are not obliged to reply.

I have tried Linux OS before (I do dislike M$) but Linux was very complicated, I assume the Linux version of ICQ would be complicated as well.

Sorry for this thread…
