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?

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
OutlPrnt
Woops!
That was my Outlook. For the user I'm having an issue with all she has is:
Outlook.srs
Outlook.xml
Odd... Not sure where those names are coming from then.......
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.

What are some  faulty entries examples?
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.
