The information for AOL password recovery contains good content. Anyway I have tried and tested 25dollarsupport.com which has proved the best till date to fix my computer problems . My first preference.

Re: AIM?
Great question. I'm not an AOL user, but according to the company's website, AIM users can sign into their account using their AOL password. So the short answer is: Yes.

In terms of bigger-picture questions about exactly what type of encryption (and if password hashes were salted, and so on) AOL might have used, AOL has yet to provide those details. (Stay tuned.)

Re: AIM?
I'm waiting for further information on the real extension of the data breach. I'm afraid that the number of affected accounts could be impressive, in this case let's be prepared for a series of further attacks which will exploit the stolen/spoofed identities.
