Windows 7: Where are Live Messenger's custom emoticons stored?

Where are Live Messenger's custom emoticons stored?

I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 on it. I backed up all my custom emoticons from my XP laptop, and would like to put them on this computer, but I can't find where the Windows Live custom emoticons are stored.

Any help much appreciated!

Did anyone give you the answer to this? I also want to do the same thing. I actually can find them but they are inserted like huge fuzzy pictures.
