    For no reason at all my ichat wont work! i cant send messages and the fonts and status icons in the buddy list are not the same. i tried backing up the app from time machine but its still wont work. I also tried deleting what i read in some mac forums to delete some files but its still busted. then i tried to install it from the installation CD, its still not working. i'd hate to reinstall the whole OS just for ichat. any ideas?

    If you create another brand-new user account (System Preferences -> Accounts) and try running iChat from there, does it work? This'll tell us if it's a system-wide problem or if it's limited to a single account.
