I use Windows Live Messenger Version 8.0 (812). â€œMy Emoticonâ€ field contains\na default blank emoticon with number â€œ8â€ as its keyboard shortcut. I can type\nthe number â€œ8â€ only after I remove this blank emoticon. However that default\nblank emoticon comes back again the next time I â€œSign Inâ€. How can I remove\nit permanently please?
