  2. Greetings Tracy,

    This is a new "security" feature in MSN Messenger 7. Assuming you're using Windows XP SP2,
    you can restore the functionality by downloading and running the following .reg file:
    http://messenger.jonathankay.com/downloads/extfix.reg
    You'll need to restart Messenger to see the change.

    If you are experiencing this issue, it may because of a
    known issue with version 7.0.0777. I suggest that you
    download the latest build 7.0.0813 which has been released
    to address this issue.
