I have encountered a strange issue with my Windows Live Messenger 2011 today. All of my msn contacts appear offline. Despite how many times I have tried to restart my com, reset my internet connection, and even flush my dns, the result is still the same. Like usual, i decided to google and this is the solution that i have found:
For Windows 7 users
- Close your Window Messenger application.
- Go to C:Users<your Windows login name>AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindows Live.
- Delete the Contacts folder.
- Start your messenger, it should work now 🙂
