    Hello,

    I no longer hear any alert sounds from Windows Live Messenger. The sounds play when testing them in Tools/Options. I have checked my Audio Video set-up in Messenger and all is OK. They worked fine and then one day they didn't play. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the latest version but still nothing.

    I have searched all over t'internet to no avail.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Yeah, so it turns out that the issue lay with my availability status - apparently if you're "busy" it won't play sounds so as not to disturb you, which is pretty sensible really. Jeez, do I feel stupid.
