    Suggestion only :

    Go to Programs and Features > scroll down to Windows essentials (2011 or 2012 ) > right click at it > click Uninstall/Change > click Repair.

    See if Repair can fix it.

    Adding.................... I can show you how to locate the Contacts.edb from your C: drive. But, I do not know how to open it or how to import it back to WLM.

    step #1.
    File Explorer options > View tab > un-check " Hide protected operating system files " > Apply/OK

    step #2.
    C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Contacts\default\DBStore\Contacts.edb

    adding to my post #2.

    There are articles on how to restore/import contacts.edb to windows live mail.
    They can be found in the web.
    Since I have never done that, and therefore cannot confirm that it works, I prefer not to post them.
    You will have to google for yourself.
    Thank you.
