I downloaded and installed QQ Instant Messenger today but when I tried to register a new  user account on the imqq.com website I was repeatedly warned: “you cannot use this nickname“. This happened with every nickname that I tried and something was obviously wrong.

The solution:

It appears that you cannot register on the imqq.com website using Google Chrome. After several failed attempts using Google Chrome, I tried using Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 on Windows 7 and user registration worked first time.
