Just how did you lose the contacts and nothing else? They're not separate
from the .pst file, so recovering them separately is pretty impossible. Did
you use scanpst.exe? It deals with corruption in the .pst file itself.
That said, did you look at your archive.pst file to
1) make certain it's not carrying the same viruses?
2) see if there are the contacts you're seeking in it?

Subject: [NTO] Does anyone know how to recover lost contacts list in Outlook
I got caught by Trojan.Goldun no extention. Norton Internet Security 2005
found it but could not delete it or Quantine it .... ended up with Windows
2000 Pro being corrupted .... when I restored it the backups where infected
.. it attached itself to a note my wife had in Outlook 2000 none of the
trojan software found it ... I used ad-aware, skyhunter, Microsoft anti spy
, Internet security 2005, Trojan Remover, Spy Bot and HSRemove..... When I
tried to Auto update Outlook 2000 it would not allow me. I had to go to the
catalog & find the file save it to my desktop and then install it, then
after I got up to sp3 the rest worked in Auto update. I also found a
suspicous user in C:/doc settings/user name/application
data/microsoft/outlook/(internet options file) I had to uncheck the box for
inherited processes. Not sure what it does but it worked ... Trojan remover
found a browser hijack and removed that ... iefixit from the Norton Site
cleaned up the browser hijacker ...
These Hackers need to be hung .... errr hangin is to good for them ... !
