Someone keeps trying to add me to their contact list in MSN Messenger. Every morning I get a prompt to either allow or block him. I block him and even check the Privacy options to make sure he is, but every morning when I sign in I get prompted again. Is there any way around this annoyance

Thanks,
Tynman

Same thing keeps happening to me. It is a real annoyance. Have you gotten anywhere in your analysis

Just found this tip on http://forum.mess.be/lofiversion/index.php/t19824.html

Seemed to have worked for me at least.

First make a backup of your contactlist by going to Contact > Save instant messaging contacts in main WLM menu (just incase). Next try the following:

Close down Messenger if it's running. Click Start > Run, and type:
%userprofile%\contacts
<enter>

If nothing appears in the folder, click the Tools > Options > View tab, click 'Show hidden files or folders' and click OK. Once you are able to see the folders, right-click the one that corresponds to your Passport and choose Delete.

Next, click Start > Run, and type:
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts
<enter>
Remove the corresponding folder again in this folder.

Restart Messenger, notice signing in will take a bit longer as it has to get your contactlist from the server again (we deleted the cache).
