Live messenger doesn't show http links in chat window.


It only shows link when there is no http, but www.
I'm so tired to copy and paste those http links to my browser all the time..

Hello LaGgEr, and welcome ot Seven Forums.

Strange, it seems to show them for me in the 14.0.8064.206 version of WLM.

Double check in the "Security" options to see if this is checked for you.

I'm using the same version of WLM and i tried to check/uncheck the "Security" options, but no any help with it.
The very strange is that in writing box it shows the http link:


I have tried to reinstall WLM but I think that some files are kept somewhere or in the registry, because the problem stays.

Run WLM in Vista SP1 or 2 Compatibility mode and see if you have the same problem.

I already have changed compatibility mode to SP1 because of that taskbar icon problem and also tried SP2 but nothing. Hmm... maybe total unistallation will help me but when i unistall live messenger with add/remove programs then something still remains because after reinstall all my settings stay the same..

I would totally un-install WLM and run a registry cleaner like ccleaner to remove the links for WLM.

Hope this helps and good luck

Tried to uninstall and clear registry with ccleaner but no luck... I think that problem can't be solved.. Maybe only solution is to format windows..

uninstall it, go to these places if they're still there after uninstalling WLM and running CCleaner and delete the contents of the WLM folders. then reinistall, see if it helps.


C:\Program Files\Windows Live or Program files x86 if you're using 64 bit.
C:\Users\UserName\Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\MSN Messenger
C:\Users\UserName\Appdata\Local\Temp\MessengerCache
C:\Users\UserName\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Messenger

Tried this way also but something still remains and no still http links. Now I downloaded older version of WLM (8.1) and http links are working.. This is not mean that I stick with 8.1, it is too old for me and I take WLM 9 back, but it's mystical why it doesn't show http links in chat window...

LaGgEr,

You might see if uninstalling all Messengers, then do a search in the registry for anything with Messenger that is related to Windows Live Messenger and delete it.

Registry Editor - Find and Find Next - Vista Forums

I would strongly recommend that you create a restore point first though in case you need to do a System Restore.
