Windows 7: Duplicate 'Contacts' folder(s) in Outlook 2003 ?

Duplicate 'Contacts' folder(s) in Outlook 2003 ?

Don't use Outlook as much as I used to so I don't know when this actually started.

When I try create a new email...Outlooks looks for the Contacts 'folder'...but I get an error saying "The address list could not be displayed..."

I then go to 'address book' and see that there are two entries for Contacts...the fist choice gives the above error (capture.jpg). When I click the second (bottom) Contacts...then everything pops up normally ?

How do I get rid of/delete the 1st Contacts listed in (doublecontacts.jpg) attached.
