Exclamation LIVE! Messenger showing wrong status - urgent help needed!

After running all the updates, uninstalling and re-installing, googling, and all-day virus and spyware scans...it still says im offline even though im clearly online!! it really starting to annoy me. The thing is i can still talk to people but they just cant see im online or send me invitiations for file transfer, audio conversation ect....if there is anything that anybody can tell me that might help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Tim.

Are you sure your account is not set to appear offline? It sounds like it's working, but it could just be your away status.

Im using Windows Live Messenger build 8.0.0812 as well, i think it all started when i blocked somebody and they blocked me at the same time...that might have something to do with it i dont know. What version are you using Morrty? maybe its something we need to notify microsoft about?
