    IMHO the simple answer is not to use 3rd party programs with MSN. There are so many different emoticon add-ons out there, some good, some not so good. If you really want to have more, try a different program .. as I see it, many of these come with adware and just not worth the time or trouble. Stay tuned for other's advice.

    2 options that i'm aware of:

    1, system restore to a time when it worked

    2, a repair of MSN:


    1. In the notification area on the taskbar (near the clock), click the MSN Messenger icon, and then click Exit.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • For users of Microsoft Windows XP:
        • On the taskbar, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Add or Remove Programs.
        • Under Currently installed programs, click MSN Messenger, and then click Change.

      • For users of a Microsoft Windows operating system other than Microsoft Windows XP:
        • On the taskbar, click Start, and then click Control Panel.
        • Double-click Add or Remove Programs.
        • Under Currently installed programs, click MSN Messenger, and then click Change.


    3. Click Repair.


    I cannot guarantee your emoticons will still be there after either step though.
    Always remember you're unique.


    ...Just like everyone else!
    If your problem is solved, here's how to say thanks!
