Specifically I cannot install AIM because the .bin download file is opening with VCL Poweder DVD (I think). It also tried to open in Final Cut a few times. Is there 3rd party software I can get (Like WinRAR for Windows) or something to use to install files beyond stuffit for .zips?

1) You didn't make it clear whether you have "Stuffit Expander". You probably need it for expanding the .bin file. If it doesn't use "Stuffit Expander" by default when you double-click the .bin file, then just drag the .bin file on top of the "Stuffit Expander" icon to force it to open with "Stuffit Expander".

2) Do you realize that there are other AIM client programs available? You already have "iChat" installed - it comes with OS X. And there are several 3rd-party client programs that many feel are superior to AIM - check www.macupdate.com
