Outlook cache display

Strange,
I have a user running 64 bit Windows 7 on a dual quad core 12 GB RAM, SSD hard drive
Office Professional 2010
When she is in Outlook and is going to write a message there are addresses in her To: area
example in "To: you start to type and you will see a list of addresses that have been used in the pass
Example to: j
                 joe@example.com
                 jane@abc.net
                 ect...
She cannot select any of these, when she trys to select one they simple close up and go away

Any suggetions?

How to import .nk2 files into Outlook 2010
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/980542

I used Procmon to try and find where it is stored, but its inside the mailbox, so I cant get a hit on any file operations when trying to clear mine..... I dont know if theres going to be an easy enaswer outside of resetting the cache, and starting over.... Maybe try and reimport another .nk2 file back in?

Rename %appdata%\Microsoft\Outlook\Profilename.NK2 to Profilename.old

Reopen Outlook, and allow it to rebuild, by sending someone a test email. Then resend another email, and see if it works....

Thanks john6767
But there is no .NK2 in Appdata/Roaming/Microsoft/Outlook/
What's in there is the following:
outcmd.dat
outlook.NK2.old
Outlook.srs
Outlook.xml

In 2010 the NK2 method is replaced by suggested contcts:

In Outlook 2010 contacts you should see a folder "Suggested Contacts".

Is there anything there at fault, you should be able to drag faulty entries out, potentially to start again.

I don't know is the simple answer ... haven't got 2010 myself.  If it affects every address then presumably it'll be something dramatic like no email addresses stored against the names.
