      The contacts are located here:

      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book

      Look for a .wab file

      Are you using Outlook or Outlook Express?
      Outlook keeps ‘contacts’ in the identity’s .pst file, although you may also use Windows Address Book found in the .wab file.

      Neither is directly accessible except through their respective application.
