Had same persistent, annoting problem for ages. I asked for help from Microsoft. Their answer:- You can protect yourselffrom receiving unsolicited commercial instant messages from sources not on your "allow" list by blocking messages from "all others" -
1. From the main NET Messenger window select the "Tools" menu.
2. Choose "Options"

3. Click the "Privacy" tab

Select "All other users" from your "Allow" list and then click the "Block" button. 5. Click "OK" when finished.

Sorry about the botched post! One of those days !

as you dont use it why not "shoot the messenger"
