for an unknown reason' when I try to Add a contact. Version 5.1 installed.

is there a reason why you are using Windows Messenger ?

You could try an earlier version of MSN or the latest Windows Live Messenger click here

Are you adding the contacts details correctly ?

  Graham. 22:56 05 Aug 2007

All my contacts use Windows Messenger.

  Graham. 23:06 05 Aug 2007

Can anyone else try a search, please?

  Graham. 15:24 07 Aug 2007

Has anyone succeeded in searching? Please try for me.

Why don't you download the Windows messenger that Skidzy left you.I don't know of anybody that uses the 5.1 version anymore.

  Graham. 20:01 07 Aug 2007

Will I be able to see my existing contacts?

  birdface 20:04 07 Aug 2007

Your contacts should be transferred to the new version.But a while since I done it ,I would wait till someone confirms.

  Graham. 20:26 07 Aug 2007

OK, I'm on Live Messenger now. I can't see how to search for a contact.

  birdface 20:31 07 Aug 2007

Just a little tip.Do not be tempted to download Messenger Plus,It causes a lot of problems.
