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.
