Delete duplicate contacts in WLM

I am using WLM in W7 x 64 bit on my desktop. Recently several duplicate contacts have appeared in my contacts list.
I have tried to delete them by right clicking on the duplicate contact, but in every case the 'delete contact' is greyed out.

Can you please help ?

Hello mate now the first that comes to mind is that you run these if you haven't already

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/433-disk-check.html < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2

if those do not fix the problem then a scan with these - just to eliminate anything untoward that may be lurking

ADW download from bleeping computer delete any rubbish found with the malware scans
(with ADW if you are running Kaspersky it will throw it up as malware just override Kaspersky by ignoring it or disabling it for the duration of the scan)
