    Guys, I used messenger a while ago and then left it. Now when I come back I get a stupid message when I was a LOT younger and I cant get rid of it

    [​IMG]

    In that box no matter what I do is a message which I have edited out which I cannot get rid of. Any ideas to get rid of it?

    I have a similar bug in WLM2011: just click in the box, write what you want as the message (even if you don't see it changing) and press enter.

    It should change it. If it's not working in compact mode use full mode and should work. [​IMG]

    P.S: WLM 2011 sucks

    Use Pidgin since Windows Live Messenger always craps out eventually.

    Yeah, its not that great and I probably wont ever use it really again, just wanted to sort that out.

    Anyway, before we get into an argument about IM request lock

    They even rolled it out using Windows Update, glad I set mine to download but do not install.
    1. Select Windows Live Messenger 2011
    2. Right click
    3. Select hide update
    4. Keep using the old less crappy one
