    yesterday my contact list disappeared. did everything i could think of then did system restore and it came back gone again.
    says i have no restore points.
    it won't let me add them again either.
    have no idea what i did.
    frustrated going to bed.

    Hi Norma,

    try this:

    Go to start - in the search bar type:

    %userprofile%\contacts

    you should see your contact list there. Now export them to a file on your desktop. Open your live mail and import them

    nothing there
    it won't even let me put them in again.
    it is like that part of windows live doesn't exist.
    if i bring that up it is just an empty box not titles or anything.
    frustrating i don't know if i did something i don't know what. aaaarrrrrggggg
