I'm not a Messenger user but it sounds as though your firewall is doing its job: a lot of stuff that's exchanged via Messenger isn't what it says it is.

Those with knowledge of Messenger will be able to tell you more about its settings but I imagine some tweaks will allow you to exchange files. But please make sure you scan files before you install them!

If you are using Zonealarm firewall,you will need to allow access and not deny messenger.

Once messenger is

Tools..options...File transfer...Tick the box..scan files.

If you do not have Zonealarm,you may have to configure your firewall settings as Kate B suggests.
