Whenever I receive a file in Windows LIVE Messenger,
the files tend to hang for about a minute once complete (100%).
Details about my setup:
Windows 7, Live Messenger Build 14
AVG Antivirus 9
Anyone have a solution to this?

This is usually down to Antivirus, particularly one that hasn't fully integrated (or is not fully compatible) with Windows Messenger.
Take a look in the
Options > File Transfer and untick
Scan files for viruses using box.
This is safe, especially if you have an active virus scanner as it will be scanned anyway - this is simply an extra level of protection.
Alternatively, you may want to look in your received files directory - I had this problem a while ago where it would look like it was hung, but the files had completed.
you can download the latest full Offline Installer instead (e.g. from Softpedia):
