Windows 7: Filename is corrupted in Live Messenger?

08 May 2010   #1

Windows 7 Pro
Filename is corrupted in Live Messenger?

The full name of the file isn't THEFRA~1.MP3 (not all letters are capitalized and there is no ~ dash in the actual filename)

Yet when sending some files over Windows Live Messenger, the filename is not correctly shown within the chat window some times (not every time; sometimes, the filename is shown correctly).

What is causing this error?

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)....
