You are probably clearing some temp files out, the new Emoticons & the pictures used in MSM Messenger 6.xx use in Microsoft?s infinite wisdom a .tmp extension & might start with the prefix TRF. If you are running a washer or cleaner of just deleting .tmp files you are deleting your pics. The files usually have Messenger somewhere in the name.

For example one of my custom emoticons is 'TFR404.tmp' which is in User/Application Data/MSN Messenger. I had to reinstall my icons etc heaps of times till the penny dropped. :-)
