Is it lazy ( taking a long time to show) poorly (Sick with a snag) or defective/defunct(missing).
Your further advice on this would be much appreciated
Open your Start Menu, click All Programs, right
-click on Windows Live Messenger, and click on Open. Then, in a few seconds you should see a little Windows Live Messenger box in your Desktop Taskbar -- or an icon in your Notification Area (to the right of your Taskbar). Double-click on either one to open the Messenger screen. If your ID and Password are not already filled in, then do so, and then check the little box that says Remember my ID and Password. When done, click on Sign In.
Once you do all that, Messenger will load, and in a moment at the lower-right corner of your screen, you'll see a pop-up box that tells you how many message you have in your mailbox. After that, every time you get a new message you'll have a new pop-up that will tell you so --- and also tell you who the message is from.
