Problems with AIM freezing?

I've had problems recently with AIM freezing. Every time I try to message someone it freezes up for a few seconds, and at first I was trying to ignore it but it has gotten progressively more annoying. I've tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it with no difference. I know it isn't my connection because it works just fine on my desktop computer downstairs, I can't seem to find a way to fix this. Any help would be awesome, thanks. <3
