Interesting IM problem

By brainb ·
Not sure if anyone else has had this problem.

Running IM 4.7 on WinXP (SP1) and instead of getting "AWAY" after the inactive time has pasted, it's becoming "Appear Offline". No one else is having this problem.

I've removed IM (including the directory and registry) and reinstall.... same thing

Any Ideas?????

Thanks for the info but no help...

The issue isn't change your status to "Appear Offline", the issue is that Messenger is making the status AO instead of "Away" and there is now way that I can see how it's doing it.
