Windows Live Messenger Crashes/Freezes everytime someone sends you mass animated emotions. Try disabling emotions.
DarthJebus05;3797084Last time I did Windows Updates, I had to reformat.
So, you don't have the latest Windows updates?
If you don't, it could be a potential issue with the .net framework.
I had a extension installed directly onto MSN Live, so I thought I would reinstall the extension. And 'yay!'! It's stopped freezing. Thanks for your help guys!
