AIM Very Slow On Windows

During my vacation in China, I tried to install AIM on my friends' Windows XP machine (notebooks). The reason is that I thought it might be easy to do video chat with my iMac since iChat only supports AIM accounts.

I only had once success to see my iMac side since I did not have video camera in China. Later on I realized that the Windows browsing becomes very slow. I am not sure it is AIM issue or the internet connection issue. The connections are all ADSL through telephone line. By chance, when I uninstalled AIM on one machine, the painful connection retained back to normal. I am not sure why.

It is too sad that I have no choice to use Skype to do video chatting.
