Windows 7: Windows 7 Contact List Won't Work

Windows 7 Contact List Won't Work

A few days ago I started setting up a new PC. I got around to checking out my contact list, and successfully imported my old Windows Mail contacts into Win7. Unfortunately, when I pull up the Contacts list, all I get is a window showing the NAMES of my contacts but none of the info. They look as if the names are "filenames" with an extention of ".contact". (I have attached a screenshot of the window pulled up when I launch my Contacts)

Anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?
