Hi everyone, let me just say fixya really lives up to their name. You really do help solve problems.
Now, for the actual problem. I am running an IBM T-30 with Windows XP SP2 and the overall system is working fine, however the picture on the start menu suddenly disappeared. System Restore and restoring the registry does not work. I feel naked without my picture. Can any of you experts help with my problem. Thank you.

I am not so sure what you've actually done, but let me give you a tip if you have made some changes with the privacy settings.
Login to your facebook account, click "Account" menu on the top-right corner, select "Privacy Settings" and then on the privacy settings page, click "Everyone" and then "Apply these Settings". Now return to the homepage or to your profile and check if any changes has taken place or not. I hope this will fix your problem, and you can still make the necessary changes with your privacy from the privacy settings.
In case you need my further assistance, don't hesitate to let me know.
The quickest, easiest way - go to the start menu --> all programs --> windows live - then right click on the live messenger program, then select "send to" then select "Desktop (create shortcut) and Viola! you should have a brand new shortcut for Windows Live Messenger on your desktop.
