Windows Live Messenger NOT Showing Contact Images In Conversations

As the title suggests I cannot see my chat partners display pics. I cannot see mine neither but they can see mine apparently.

I have been to the App Data folder and deleted contacts thing in there also the display pics folder in there and it made no difference at all.

On the list of contacts images are shown fine.

I am using Build 15.4 as the very newest one would just show a white window when someone messaged me and all that would be shown besides whiteness was an ad. :apthy:

So any solutions around I could try?
