Free MSN Emoticons Pack 1 is an email plug-in that works as an integrated application by providing users with more emoticons to use in MSN Messenger. The pack contains various animated emoticons that are ready to install and free from malware, adware, and viruses (which other free packs of emoticon add-ons may come with). The 27 bundled emoticons inside the Free MSN Emoticons Pack 1 include a wide range of doodled emoticons in comical form. Every item is designed to portray exaggerated facial expressions in 2D display, but with accents and shadows on the edges to give an effect that simulates 3D.
Upon downloading, a setup wizard opens and prompts users to install the icon pack to the MSN Messenger application. Since the file is compact, the installation process happens in a matter of seconds. There is no need to restart the computer because Free MSN Emoticons Pack 1 works as an email plug-in, where the installed emoticons automatically appear once Messenger has been closed and re-opened. To use the emoticons, users can simply select their desired item through a single click. No other keyboard shortcuts, commands or mouse actions can be used in selecting an emoticon from the file pack.
