I have solution for this problem.

First, Close your MSN (And End process "msnmsgr" in task manager)

Then, Delete All File in This Folder C:\Users\(Current User)

\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts( For Vista )

For Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\(Current User)\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

Log in Again so The notice will disappear.

From Zack: THANK YOU SO much! The above fix is great and easy! :D
