    Windows Live Messenger 2009

    As I am done with my 3rd pack of cigarettes, whilst trying to fix my msn, I'm finally giving up;

    here's the problem, when i sign in, the contact list doesn't appears, now i tried all the suggestions i found online (as this problem seems to be global) [registry editing, filesys changes etc.]


    anyone got an idea?

    who ever solves this problem gets the Member of the Month award from me

    Re: Windows Live Messenger 2009

    My friend has that problem too but im not too sure why or how to get ur contacts back. Maybe you could try downloading the older versions of msn or reinstall msn?
    Btw while that friend of mine cant see me online , i can see him online and chat with him.

    Re: Windows Live Messenger 2009

    I asked google and these seem to have worked for others:

    1.

    " Closed the msn messenger process.
    Went to the aforementioned registry location:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger
    Double clicked 'ProtocolHandlerLock' and changed the 0 to a 1
    Closed regedit, and opened MSN. "

    2.

    "1) Open your msn and login...even though you have no contacts
    2) Open your Windows task manager
    3) Go to process and find msnmessenger...or something similar to that and click on it then select end process
    4) Restart the msnmessnger and your contacts will be there

    It works ALL the time guaranteed. and WAY faster than re-installing. or downgrading"

    Like I said they aren't my ideas, just searched around.
    If they work i want that award btw

    Re: Windows Live Messenger 2009

    try using Pidgin, its a universal IM service that has msn, see if your contacts show up then, if they do then something is wrong with you MSN, if they don't show up then i'm out of ideas

    Re: Windows Live Messenger 2009

    It's your computer's problem not MSN, so reinstall windows or try a different MSN client.

    the contacts ran away
    log on to msn and click 'other contacts'
    they are hiding from you
