Can anyone help? This morning I logged into Windows Live Mail and all of my
Contacts are gone. I am running this from my laptop which has Windows Vista.
Does anyone else have this problem and does anyone have a solution?

What do I import from? All my contacts were already in Windows Live Mail so
I don't know which option to choose

I too have this problem, I am trying to figure out a way to retrieve my
contacts without rolling back to a previous image. I will repost if I find a
solution.

See my message earlier, and responses. Sounds like you may have the same
problem.

I have the same problem - Windows preformed an automatic update to Live mail
& after the update all contacts have disappeared. the only way I get my
contacts back is to do a system restore- but then the font on the live mail
is large & I can not get it smaller. I hope someone has a fix- its driving me
nuts.

go to start - in the search bar type %userprofile%\contacts you should see
your contact list there - then export them to a file on your desktop - open
your live mail - & import them -- You have to set up your groups again but
your contacts should come back.

I found this tip on another post & it works!!

Thanks for your post, esp for writing it in a way it could be understood by a
normal person

Me too. I hope they come up with a fix quickly. Very frustrating.

Try the following steps and see if they work for you. It imported a
ton of contacts for me, but I'm not 100% positive that they contain
the latest information before I upgraded:

1. Click the icon in the upper right next to the Help icon.
2. Select Import > Address book for current Windows user
