    • First, exit Windows Live Messenger completely - To do this, right-click on WLM button/icon on Taskbar and select Exit.
    • Go to Start and locate WLM shortcut.
    • Go to Compatibility tab. Tick the check box for Run this program in compatibility mode for under “Compatibility Mode”, and then select your Windows from the drop down list.
    • Click OK.
    • Run Windows Live Messenger.

    Try this...

    • Open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del
    • Click on "Processes" tab
    • Highlight the "Explorer" process
    • Click "End Process" -- This will stop your desktop.
    • Click on "Applications" tab
    • Click "New Task"
    • Type "Explorer" and click OK. This will restart the explorer which manages the desktop.


    Hopefully, the icon should return....all the best
