Cannot find contact in Lync 2010

"The Address Book Is Preparing To Synchronize. Search Results Might Not Be Current Warning In Lync 2010 Client"

I have followed the link below. Try to force the update with powershell. Can't search the recommendation registry on client's PC but no help...

Any idea ?

Try this script on client

@echo off
echo Clearing Lync Address Books...
reg add HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Communicator /v GALDownloadInitialDelay /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
If %errorlevel%==1 goto Error
if "%LOCALAPPDATA%"=="" Set LOCALAPPDATA=%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data
dir "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Communicator\sip_*" /b > list.txt
FOR /F "tokens=1" %%i in (list.txt) do del "%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Communicator\%%i\gal*.*"
echo Sign out of Lync and sign back in to download the current address book.
goto End
echo You must run this command from an elevated Command Prompt.

Save the script above as ClearLyncAddressBook.bat and run it from an elevated Command Prompt.  Then sign out and back into Lync and the address book will download immediately.
