    Windows 8 Messaging

    My windows 8 messaging is linked to Facebook and it looked like windows or msn messenger, and I an getting some unwanted chats from some strange people, as soon as I turn on the pc, I cannot find an option to disable this chat or better still block the person.
    can anyone tell me if there is a way to block, I don't want to uninstall the app, thanks fro any suggestions

    If you've linked your accounts, it's linked. You can always unlink your FB account and not use your live account, but if you want messaging but no messages, currently you don't really have many options. You can stop it from running in the background by changing permissions from the settings charm, but that won't stop people from being able to contact you when it's open.
