Hello Delicieuxz,

If you needed to change them back, then the tutorial below should help show you how to.

Hi, thanks for the link, but the audio files are not located where they are claimed to be:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Messenger

I've been looking all over for them. I'm wanting to change the received message sound to be what the contact log-in sound is.

I believe they are here:

C:\users\(User Name)\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Messenger\(Email Address)\ObjectStore\SignatureSounds

They are not common audio files though. A Guy

To bad that they are encrypted and cannot be selected to use though.

That sucks. They used to be wav files, I think. I was able to select and customize them the previous time I installed Messenger, which would've been maybe a year ago.
