Windows Live Messenger problem(s) contacts + nickname RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, My name is Glenn and i'm having a some difficult issues the last few days with Windows Live Messenger, to start ; I'm dutch and my english isn't great, i hope you can help me though :P

    Here's the situation ; I can't add contacts ! I've tried several ways, googled for days, tried to find a solution but nope, nothing. I'm running Windows Vista, i've tried reinstalling it for over 10 times, tried to delete everything from windows live messenger, did system recovery, etc etc. Whenever i try to add a contact it says "service is unavailable" Good to know is that whenever i log in on msn, change my nickname, log out, and when i log in, it's my old nickname again !

    I'm really sorry for my bad english :D

    I'm also really sorry if this is in the bad forums xD
