I stand corrected. Clicking on Contacts does open it in Windows Explorer,
although that is not immediately apparent (no "Windows Explorer" in
the title bar). Right-clicking on a contact immediately brings up a
standard explorer context menu for me. I don't know why this is not
working for you. I can delete contacts either with the keyboard Delete
key or from the Delete button on the toolbar.
Are you running any non-compatible antivirus like McAfee or Norton?
If so, uninstall it and try again.
