After installing SP-2, I can no longer display profiles of people on my
contact list. Right clicking after a contact no longer has view profile on
the drop down list. Is there another way to display profiles. Thanks for
any suggestions you may have.

Greetings John,

The SP2 version of Windows Messenger doesn't support Add-Ins, so this feature is now gone.

To quickly fix this, simply downgrade back to the previous version from here:

You'll also need the MSN Add-In:
