Hello-  I am using the latest version of IceChat.  Every time I try to click on an emoticon in the emoticon menu Icechat freezes up.  This has been happening consistently since I started using IceChat.  Any help that could be provided with this issue would be much appreciated. :-)

Can you use emoticons otherwise, if you just type :) in the chat box, do they show up in the channel?

Can you provide me some information about your computer, what windows, etc?

Also, from the Help menu, debug items, check dll versions, can you paste the results here.
