Resolved Window Live Messenger Invitation Alert Message

I guess it might be window live messenger defect because it keeps on alerting me there are three invitations after I signed in to messenger.

First time there are really having invitations pending to confirm, but all are the spammer invitation so I have selected to block and ignore them. After I ignore the invitation the alert message has been disappear from the messenger but after some time it re-appear again.

I got no choice hence I Sign Out and Sign In, hoping that will refresh the status but it doesn’t work. I guess there may another three invitations pending to confirm and I click on the link to check it out, however I found that actually there is no invitation in the queue.

I performed the Sign Out / Sign In action many time but seem doesn’t fix; finally I got the solution from Google.

Here is the way that works for me.

1. Sign Out and exit the messenger and then enable the “Show hidden files and folders” in the folder option.

2. Go to “C:\Documents and Settings\[users]\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts.

3. Delete all the folders and then Sign In to messenger again, the invitation is no longer displaying on the page.

    deleted but invitations are still there. 11 of them

    After deleted try to exit the messenger.

    Before you re-login to the messenger you are required login to window live website to change your privacy setting to ONLY allow friends to send you invitation, if the setting is “public” meaning the spam invitation also allow.

    Hope it helps!
