Go to “C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\MSN Messenger“. Be sure that Windows Explorer is set to show hidden content. If you have several Messenger accounts you may get confuse because it use id instead of email account. With this you need to find out by yourself which one is an account you want to backup and then emos is deposited in “ObjectStore\CustomEmoticons“. Otherwise take them all.

If you don't want backup manually, you can use one of these tools: Messenger Backup, MSN Backup.

If you live on Windows Vista, those applications may not work :

1. Backup Emoticons
* Go to “C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Microsoft“.
* copy folder “Messenger” and past it where you want (may be in temporarily folder in other drive or Flash drive)
2. Transfer Windows Live Messenger setting
* Click Start and type “Windows Easy Transfer” in Search and enter.
* After you click Next, Click on Start a new transfer –> My Old Computer –> Select a method you want to transfer (I prefer CD/DVD and then later you may select Flash Drive) –> Click on Advanced Option –> under your account select Application setting and the Windows Live Messenger.
