Well if your contacts are using old version of yahoo messenger then. you can't see avatars ofcourse... tell them to update o.O.

definitely not the problem as I have it running with no problems.

The default is to show a small square online status indicator. But if you go to tools - layout, you can change that to show avatars.

Ah i understand now what did you mean. Well, i don't know why, but sometimes it does the same for me but with HOTMAIL accounts, so i think it's because of the older version they use.

How do you stop Live Messenger popping up on start up? I don't want to remove it, just open it when I want it. Was easy to do on XP! Otherwise I think Windows 7 is fine (so far!). Tried Task Manager - Services, but couldn't fine Messenger. Also not in Control Panel - Uninstall (not as I want to)....
