O.P. Probably a really n00b question.
Okie, I have a huge OCD for things like this, and recently I've been getting this problem. It has something to do with the ALT button I think but I can never get it to fix. I've even restarted a couple of times, sometimes it just disappears but I'm not sure how! There's this sort of top-window thingy that takes over the actual windows live messenger window, it makes it look like a vista window instead of the nice rounded design and it really makes me mad. Anyone know how to fix it? Here's a picture of the problem....

Click the options button(circled red in MeEtc's screenshot) and it'll produce a drop down, the very bottom option should be "Show the menu bar". Chec/Uncheck this and it should solve your problem.

Note: Pressing the Alt button brings this menu bar back up for quick access to some of the controls, but it will disappear after you let Alt go, however sometimes it gets stuck on some applications.

It's a checked/unchecked value.
