Spurious Contacts in Hotmail Contacts List

Likes # 0

I have 3 spurious contact is my Hotmail Contacts list which I can't get rid of.

When creating a new message and I click on "to" to open my address book, in it the are at the end of my proper contacts, 3 contacts who I have not created or added to my contacts list. They are drunkgirlroom, Nakedchatshh and Sexychickroom. These are not alphabetically listed like my proper contact and are in bold typeface I want to delete them but when I go into my contacts list without creating a message those 3 contacts are not listed anywhere. A search of my contacts does not locate them either. Can anyone help please

If you use Messenger check that they are not contacts there. If they are delete them in and see if that makes tgem go in Hotmail

Thank you so much.

I clicked on the messenger tab in Hotmail and it brought up a screen listing these three as wanting to be friends. I clicked no thanks to each and low and behold they have disappeared from my contacts list.

Its a great weight off my mind as I had just bought a duff Norton Antivirus and thought I picked up something nasty.

Best regards

Lizzy
