Not able to edit MSN Address book

I can't edit my MSN email address book on my home PC.   I get the following error:

Windows cannot open this file
To open this file, Windows needs to know what program created it.  Windows
can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select from a list of
programs on your computer.
What do you want to do?
    Use the Web service to find the appropriate program
    Select the program from a list

Note:  Works fine on my work PC.

Am I missing a program?  How can I fix this problem?
