Can't see any emoticons in Yahoo Messenger.

My apologies if this query has already been answered. I went through at least about 70+ Yahoo Messenger and emoticons posts, but couldn't find my problem being discussed anywhere. Here's my problem :
Since, the first time I installed Yahoo Messenger(about a yesr back), I have never been able to see any emoticons sent by my friends or sent by me. Instead, I always see a small red cross in a box. However, my friends can see the emoticons that I send them. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Yahoo Messenger umpteen times, upgraded it to the latest versions available (thru ver 6.1 to the current 8.1), but still cant see them. The emoticons list is visible though.
I have always kept the "Emoticons" options in Yahoo "Messenger--->Preferences" enabled, but still no respite.
I have been using Windows XP SP1 (never reformatted it since that last 2 years), multiple security apps. (AVG Free + ZoneAlarmm Free + SpywareBalster + AdAware + Spybot). I wonder if my Windows XP or all these security apps. are cauing any problems.
