i downloaded the new windows live messenger 9 and when I signed in all my contacts that I had were deleted what should I do? I really need help to sort this out cause I want to talk to my friends again
"I recovered my contacts by doing the following. Clicked on Tools, Options, Privacy. Right Click on Entries in the Allow List that you wish to recover. Click on Add to Contacts. They went straight back onto the list without having to contact the person. Grouping and Nicknames had been lost. Not sure if it helps everyone here or not."
otherwise, from what I can make out this is a very common issue with version 9
go back to your previous version if the above does not help.
