Windows 7: Windows Live messenger issues

Windows Live messenger issues

Okayso.. I just added a friend of mine on WLM.. problem is, I can't see her, and she can't see me. When I go to another account, we can see eachother, but not on my primary one (it's a parental controlled one, and my parent allowed the contact request).

Is there a way to fix this?

EDIT: While we're on this topic..
A while ago I disabled all of the 'What's New' settings.. now I'm wanting them back on.. but every time I get told that it could not save my changes.. any help with this issue too?

Are you sure you don't have her blocked?
You can select individuals and block them by email.
If that isn't the case I'd delete them and request them again.

If this is true then you have something set in your online preferences set wrong.
Is the email address of this person in your online contacts list?
Does this happen with anyone else or just this one person?
You can rest all your presferences in WLM as last resort.

Now that is funny.
Trying to solve a problem and all it was was an incorrect email address.
Lucky I don't charge by the hour.
