    I have Windows Live Messenger 8.0 and I'm unable to view the display pictures of other contacts - I see this instead:

    I can see my own display picture but that's it. I have tried reinstalling and upgrading - did not help. Are there any fixes for this? Thanks

    I get that sometimes. After a while the display picture appears. Mess.be often has a lot of patches etc. for this sort of thing.

    Yes. I've recently installed that - but I have ran messenger without ZoneAlarm running and the display pictures still don't appear.

    EDIT: My mistake - I didn't shut down ZoneAlarm properly. The display pictures appear now but they don't appear when ZA is on. How do I resolve this problem?

    Sorry, didn't see your edit. I was gonna give you a manual fix which worked for me. I suppose you've got it sorted now.
