After losing the user profile and going back to a restore point. Got most things back.
When checking Outlook 2010, noticed that when I type an email address in the TO space, it does not auto complete. Ok no biggie as it was probably ini CACHE.  But when  I click on TO and then enter the name into SEARCH, it does not find my contact.  When I click on the various contact list, like suggested contacts etc... no luck.   YES I made sure that I clicked on the CONTACT - user email account.
Help?

Do you have a backup of an old NK2 file that you may have used in previous versions of Outlook?

This was working for the last week.  Its' not so much the NK2 file thing, but why did it stop AND more importantly when I click on the TO: and then search why does it not find a contact that IS in fact in the contacts.?  I could go get the NK2 off the old machine if it really will solve both problems.

I guess I left out one important detail.  The old system was Outlook Express.  I have since done a search of that system and not found any nk2 files.

Any other ideas?
