A couple of months ago I got a Laptop and moved everything from my desktop to it, the only stuff I couldn’t move were my custom MSN messenger emoticons. I tried to enter via another username to the other PCs messenger and send the emoticons manualy but it didn’t work since each user has its own emoticon collection.

Yesterday I found a little tool that does half the job for me, this wizard (direct download link) will extract emoticons, display pictures and background from any MSN account you want and put them in a folder you select. You still have to manually re-create every emoticon but it’s better than nothing!
