Outlook Display As messed up

I've recently discovered that the Display As fields for some of my Outlook 2010 contacts were mixed up.

Eg. Contact A has Contact's B info in the Display As field. Contact B's display may not be showing Contact A's info.

Not all contacts are affected. Probably about 20% of all contacts.
Any idea how this may have occurred and what can be done to prevent it?

Run Outlook in safe mode and check the result. I assume, users might changed the settings.

running as safe mode still shows the same result. it is quite unlikely that the user will spend so much time altering the contacts.
