Adding contacts problem

Can't see a newly added contact?

Solution:

1.) Exit Messenger completely (this means right clicking the Messenger tray icon and choosing Exit).

2.) Open your registry editor (Start > Run > regedit.exe) and navigate to:for Messenger 8.0: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessengerfor Messenger 8.1: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsLive\CommunicationsClient

3.) Once there, you must remove the following subkeys:for Messenger 8.0: Policiesfor Messenger 8.1: Shared4. Close your registry editor and restart Messenger.

If you think you cannot make it, just run:

This solution doesn't work for me, whenever i enter the registry HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsLive\CommunicationsClient and delete the folder "Shared" it just keeps coming back and I still have the same problem.

This solution does not work for me either, the shared folder keeps coming back, and does not fix any of my problems with adding contacts. This is extremely annoying!!

anyone have any idea to this solution?

This didn't work for me either.

MSN will not add any @msn.com contacts, it adds them for less then a second before deleting them without even asking me about it.

Please, there must be a fix for this.
