Need to restore Address Book


Feb 17, 2015
The situation is this: working Windows 2000 OS, Outlook Express 6. Suddenly at the user all records vanish in the Contacts window. In a window Contacts an inscription "The list of contacts is empty. For creation of contact press 'Contacts'". Thus, in the address book, they remained in the same form.
That did: I exported records of the Address book, I deleted all records, then I imported everything back - any changes. I created new contact in the Contacts window (Contacts - to Create contact) - record is published in the address book, but not in the Contacts window.
What assumptions will be?
