Hello Alex,

This problem usually occurs when your contact directory or any files related to this is corrupted. So try to repair it or if you can locate its location then copy it from some other PC and paste into your system and restart your computer and try again. If that is hard for you then you can fix this manually by the following method.

To delete the corrupt contact directory or store follow this method.

Go to My Computer>tools>folder option>and show the hidden folders and files and save it.

Then go to My Computers>Drive where you have installed your Windows>Users>Windows_log-on_name>Contacts>… And delete all files including the hidden files. Then again search the following path

Users>Windows_logon_name>local Settings>Application Data>Microsoft>Windows Live Contacts

And also delete all the files from here. and then restart your system and try again to login.

Hope this will work for you.
