Before you start using Windows LIve Messenger, you can customize the program to show the menu bar if you prefer, automatically sign in, and display personalized information. You can change your display name, provide a personal message, and select a picture to represent you while you communicate with others online. Instead of selecting a regular static picture, you can select a dynamic display picture (New!) or character that provides animation, such as a WeeMee, MeeGos, Quebles, or Kiwee.
