* On the right-click Windows Live Messenger, click on Properties
* In the Compatibility tab, check the box Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista in the drop down menu , then click Apply.
* Collapse full Windows Live Messenger.

Now, when Windows Live Messenger will be executed, the status icon will appear in the notification area.
