Just as for your custom MSN emoticons, you can access your custom MSN avatars.

You can find them here (well, I know they’re here on Windows XP):

C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Microsoft\MSN Messenger\yourmsnaccountnumber\UserTile

They have the extension .dat, so just copy them elsewhere and rename them to either .png, .gif or .jpg and you’re good to go.

If you are using Adium on a Mac, you can simply drag the avatar to the desktop while you’re in a chat window.
