Have you tried allowing MSN to work around the firewall you should be able to put an exception for MSN.

do you have it clicked on?? I.E do you have "contacts can see display picture" on?

and in some cases, older versions will not work with new verisons...you have to have the same verison.

Try these things in this order my friend



1. Yea there is an option to veiw others display pictures in the MSN options menu.

2. Try windows messenger live http://get.live.com/messenger/overview

3. Turn your windows firewall on, and pull the netgear firewall to see if that is causing the problem.


Let me know how that works for you.

I have a Netgear firewall and my MSN works perfectly, pictures and all....so it shouldn't be the Netgear's firewall blocking it.
