Thanks Jonathan, it was the latest released version I believe, which I was
made to upgrade and download as I was using a pretty old version of MSN
Messenger beta. I dont see the text of the emots - when I type the emot text
in I see it as I type but then as soon as I send it, the whole thing
disappears. I can't see the emot or the emot text in the conversation window
but the person I am messaging can see the emot itself. This same thing
happened about 4 months ago on another PC I was using which had an up to date
version of Live Messenger, but the problem resolved itself within a day.
However this has been going on for 4-5 days now. Any ideas as to what it is
and what I can do about it please?
Thanks for your advice
