Some third party IM services do not allow you to be logged into their IM service through two log-ins at the same time. If KarooLark detects during the KarooLark start-up process that you have been logged off of a third party IM service connection that you established through KarooLark because you have subsequently logged onto that IM service through another means, we will offer you the opportunity to stop the third-party IM service from launching on start-up so that the conflict will not occur. If you choose that option, the third party IM service will not be activated on start up.
