And that's it, now all http links in WLM9 work like hell!! Thank you guys very much.
I thought that i'm just one unlucky guy whose messenger eat brains...
Problem seems to be with compatibility modes, i didn't try to turn off vista mode, but now I have a new problem, messenger icon is doubled on taskbar and nothing in notificaton area.
When I first installsed win7 then I used this tutorial.

That good news.

You have to run WLM in Vista SP1 or 2 compatibility mode though or you will get that double icon problem and it won't be in the system tray.

Thank you all again, now I must choose between links and tray icon. I choose icon and hope that WLM will be compatible with Win7 soon.

The same thing happens to me. When I run WLM in compatibility mode, the links are not clickable if I write to online/busy/away friends, but one I use offline messaging it displays the link. When I remove compatibility mode there are no issues like this, but I hate to see double windows live messenger in taskbar, and I don't want to use combine mode. My OS is the latest Windows 7 build (7600-16835), and I think that in RC 7100 this wasn't happening.

Hmm strange, I think that it's a big lottery to get windows correctly installed and we are the unlucky ones.... I have build 7201 and that problem.. You said that build 7600 has this problem too.... now i'm really scared..

Sorry to bump this old thread.

Is there any news on this issue? I was running compatibility mode for a few months and wasn't able to click on links, until i bumped into this thread. Is there a way to see links and use the tray icon at the same time?

I discovered that my desktop computer things are running fine when I don't make my Opera browser to default browser, in notebook i chose Opera browser default and i don't see links. So is it maybe problem with opera or messenger needs IE to be a default browser?
