Windows 7: WLMessenger 2011 StartBar Issues

Win7 - Ideally
WLMessenger 2011 StartBar Issues

Evening People,

I have heard mixed reviews about this piece of software, so wanted to try it myself. I appreciate some of the new features it brings, however some things are just plain odd!

I can't really explain it with words, so 2011_1.png will do the best job I can. As you can see, I can't 'preview' windows like with most other things in Win7. I can't really figure whats causing this. I've tried playing with aero a little however it hasn't done much. Any tips would be much appreciated!

Also...the emoticons, what on earth did they do to them!? looks like you're a lost/confused. 2011_2.png just looks suggestive! There is still no way to remove/alter any of these is there? (no chance of revering to the old emoticons?)

I also have gone through the post about "mail 2011 with messenger 2009" - no further possibility of getting that to work?

Also I am having some pretty significant problems with message notifications - I will have new messages yet not be notified about them. (See 2011_3.png) Anyone had this problem, and been able to fix it?

Any help on any of these issues is much appreciated!

File and menu issues in WLM 2011
Hi guys, I am not normally annoyed by this but I've been sending a lot of files recently and it would be handy to know what I am sending. Whenever I send or receive a file, all I see is a blank white box and the options to save, open, cancel etc. I am not sure if it is a coincidence or if...
