Recovering the Windows Address Book

My Sony VAIO running Windows ME is on its last leg and has stopped running. The only way I can get it started is to boot it up with a floppy in DOS mode.

I desperately need to recover the contents of the Windows Address Book that is part of the Windows ME 'Accessories'. Can anyone tell me how to find the files and recover them?

Thanks
Vanessa

If you need information about OUTLOOK EXPRESS files, type OLEXP BACKUP into www.google.com and read the Microsoft articles.

The article lists the file names and what files you need to save and how to restore them.

I've never used Outlook Express. I assume the accessories address book is a separate program.

If I hand out a clue and you don't take it, then what do we do next?
