Live messenger escaped from systray

Hello,
Since yesterday the messenger icon won't go in the systray like it used to. Messenger is in compatibility mode and it still works on my laptop so i got no idea what to do. Did microsoft install some kind of update ?

If your using Comodo Firewall, it'll do that. That's my issue anyway :|

Is it completely missing or can you see it when you hit the little expand arrows?

You have Messenger in Vista compatibility mode? -- Make sure you enabled compatibility mode for the main application at Program files > Windows Live > Messenger folder > msnmsgr.exe

I just reformatted, and I'm on W7. I was downloading MSN, and I noticed its the new 2011 one, which I find pretty shitty, I couldn't find a link to the old/normal Live Messenger, does anyone know where to get it?

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)....
