Windows live messenger wont show contact images

On windows live messenger, either on the list, or in a conversation, the images of my contacts wont show. The settings is for showing the biggest image. It worked some days ago, but not now. A just contact logged on , and the image of her showed. But most of the contacts doesnt show the image. Earlier, this issue has been solved by starting a conversation, but it doesnt help now.Its the 2011-version.

Someone knows something about this issue?

Try this.
Go to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Messenger\youremail@hotmail.com\ObjectStore. Delete that folder. Here are located display pictures. Then try to sing in.

You say it worked a few days ago, have you tried a System Restore point that's just before this happened ?

Tried to restore it, but the system couldnt complete the restoring either!

An error appeared on the screen with code 0xc0000022

I tried 2 times, the strangest thing is that the clock on lower right side each time increased with one hour

And in the norton antivirus protection system, another error code apperad: 3047,53

Norton may be the reason to all of these problems

Yes,to delete the images that are cached in your pc,to be cached again. I was searching on the internet and found that deleting them helped someone.
