Afternoon!  I'm having an unusual issue with windows live messenger.  What's happening is whenever I have a user log into messenger; it'll come up ok, but will show an empty contact list even if the user has contacts associated with their account on the computer.  If I go into the options menu and choose to create a category, it'll list out all the contacts, so it recognizes that they are there, but still won't bring them up on the home screen.  Any ideas?

Apparently this is a known issue and Microsoft is working on a solution.
I found a possible corrective measure here.

Tried the first solution, no luck there.  Will get in touch with the support team and see what comes of it.
