That was a first for sure seeing that one! I was still in good shape however having a few new drives images made in the last few days when you consider not being able to get the av program uninstalled and reinstalled once that happened!

Plus that was the first actual mishap seen with any of the WL downloads since they came out! Now I am stuck waiting for the finished version because of it.

WL accually does have a bad history of effing itself up on uninstall . but usually it only affects itself.

This was seen during the install here however which was rather alarming. Typically especially with any fresh install of messenger for example you expect the need to go back after any of those funny emotions or winks for the Live messenger but not have to restore your entire drive!

The one thing sure about beta anything however is that beta is still beta and anything can happen!

1. You can go to the More Options part, and set your name to not show a last name and put your first name as whatever you want your Alias.

2. You should read this: http://www.liveside.net/main/archive...er-wave-3.aspx

3. WTF!?

there is no save contact list in contacts

once you maximize the window it, close it and then you reopen it, its back to its original restored down size

some people are online but not receiving messages

why cant you talk to people that are online facebook chat from msn? you can only talk to people from facebook that you have on msn but it add's all your friends/artists/groups etc but you can only send them msg via facebook inbox.
