HOW are you trying to delete your Contacts? Are you doing it from Windows
Explorer? Why not use the Contacts button in Windows Mail?
But deleting them from Windows Explorer does work for me. I browse to
C:\Users\RC\Contacts, then I select one from the list and use the normal
deletion technique, either the Delete key or right-click then Delete.
Unless I use the Shift key while deleting, Vista puts the deleted Contact
into my Recycle Bin - as usual.
Sometimes, if Vista is very busy (especially on a slow computer with limited
RAM), you might see a "Not Responding" message for several seconds - or even
a few minutes - while Vista completes its previous task. Clicking the mouse
at this time might trigger an abnormal exit from Windows Explorer. The only
cure for this is patience. ;^}
Step by step, how are you trying to delete Contacts? Are you an
Administrator? And logged on as such?
