You can try opening the Windows Update panel, 'View update history', 'Installed Updates', and find and uninstall the update for Windows Live Essentials/Windows Live Mail. My installation date was Oct 05, I think. When I updated I didn't lose any Contacts or any of my Account settings.

I'm absolutely positive and I don't know why. When I did a fresh install two months ago to install a new SSD I didn't lose anything. The only Folder in my User account marked 'Contacts' is empty. I'm thinking that the 'Contacts' are somehow stored on the Windows Live Mail server with your account settings, but I'm not sure. You could log onto your Live Mail account using your browser to make sure that they are stored there.

I did find this which pretty much explains why even the Contacts from my Verizon e-mail were saved and kept intact on this site even after a clean re-install of Windows 7 and Live Mail. http://explore.live.com/windows-live-contacts?lc=1033
