msn emoticon issue

  gazmix 01:32 01 Sep 2007

Recently when using msn messenger it all froze & shut down!

I restarted it & the emoticons i have, some rude but fun, i can't see when i type them.
For instance when i type :) it looks to me like that & not the yellow smiley face! But the recipient sees the smiley face!

Before, if i typed :) or ;) i'd see the emoticon in my message i'd be writing.
What is the problem, i guess it's something in the settings or something!

Help appreciated.

Can anyone help me with this please!!

When i type in the :) i usually get a smiley face appear in my sentence. Now all i get is :)
The recipient gets the yellow smiley face.
The same goes for all the emoticons, the default ones & the ones i have.

Help please

In Windows Live Messenger it is Tools > Options > Messages > Show Emoticons.
