It might depend on which msn you are using. It might be outdated.
If you are using an up to date one, you could try uninstalling it and then reinstalling it.

Have you tried removing it and any add - ons from add or remove programs. Then try to install the latest msn. If this problem continues then maybe its another program. I sometimes have boxes when i see another language. eg. Chinese characters are boxes to me
