I just noticed that my email program entitled Outlook has disappeared. Would like to access the address book there as I lost the address book on Outlook Express and would like to do some importing.

I recently downloaded and installed the new MSOffice 2007 (free version) so whether that has had something to do with Outlook disappearing do not know. Can advise?

Office Outlook address book is located in the same folder where the documents are. To reach that folder:

1: Click My computer > tools > folder options > view. Check "show hidden files and folders" and click apply > OK.

2: Click "local disk c:" > documents and settings > user account > local settings > application data > Microsoft > outlook. That's where your address book is.

1 - hidden files was already checked
2 - can only follow path as far as document & settings; there is no user account and if I open all user account, there is no local settings. Not sure where to go next. Can advise further?

Please forgive me for asking: When you open Documents and Settings, what do you see? Are there no any accounts? not even "all users" and "default user"?

By "user account" I meant the account that you use for everyday work. It can bear any name given during the installation of XP.

See attachment - this is what I have and when I went to All Users, that is where I failed to find your further instructions. The Jean account is where I have all working documents - does that help?

Yes, click Jean and when it opens click Local Settings etc. By the way, your post did not include the attachment.

Really - no attachment. Wonder what I did wrong? It came up as a file and I clicked on upload and then on send - hmmmmmmmmmm. Back to the drawing board. Will follow your latest direction and see how I do.

Hey was finally able to follow your path through to local setting, and on to Microsoft, Outlook - but no address book there. In fact Outlook email program has disappeared from my PC since I downloaded MSOfficed 2007. Or maybe it was just a coincidence but whatever - MS Outlook is no longer on my system seemingly and do not know why.

I have a back up scan disc so will plug it in and see if I can locate Outlook email program on it.
