This is actually a huge problem for me. Somehow my messenger resets and I
have to reblock all the people that I blocked already. My block list is over
500 and when messenger resets a million windows pop up asking me to
allow/block again. This is very annoying to block each one individually
I have tried many things to delete the names on the list for instance: I
unblocked everyone on my block list and added them to my allow/contact list
then I tried deleting the contacts permanently from my contact list. They
always end up back on my block list.
I want to be able to delete the names permanenetly. If this means
forfeiting the names being blocked as well deleted than this if fine. So I
ask, at this time now is there a way to delete the names on the block list
permanenetly. Perhaps there is a new version of windows live messenger that
will fix this issue?
