Very occasionally I used Windows Live Messenger 8.1.
Sometimes during a chat session, a stranger may try to start a 'conversation'. It's not a problem, but I was wondering how I can be seen to be on-line by strangers if I do not appear in their contacts list?
I would wait till someone else can help.I very seldom use MSN But I have never had anyone else contact me if they were not in my Contacts list.As far as I know they have to contact you asking if you want them on your list.maybe you have clicked Ok at one time.But easy enough to check,go into your contact list and see if they are there.
Yes I had that years ago I think it was Windows messenger 5.4 or Windows explorer. something like that.That my grandaughter had been using it and never switched off.It was set to open when computer started.Maybe someone else can think of it but it was a while back.
