Can't search contacts in outlook 2010

I reinstalled windows and imported outlook .pst file back into outlook 2010. All show up emails and contacts, but I can't search existing contacts. If I enter a new contact and save, then a search will find the new contact. Any ideas?

Nevermind. Ran a repair on the .pst and gave the program time for indexing the nearly 2GB .pst and it is working.

Have you run Windows Update and updated to Office SP1? SP1 might solve your indexing issue.

Thanks, but I believe the program was in the process of indexing such a large .pst (2gb) and I would either close it and it would start all over or got corrupted, so the scanpst.exe repaired it and after leaving the program opened and uninterrupted overnight it is now working. Thanks for responding, though.
