"then i the outlook shuts down"
You have a contradiction there.

Here is some extra help.
Naturally, you should already have backups of your address's.

Address book corrupted
Click on “Start”, go to “Search”. Click “All Files and Folders”. Now, make sure you select “More advanced options” and make sure “search hidden files and folders” is checked. Type *.wab in “all or part of file name” in the top box. Now, click on “search”. When it finds a file named “someidentitynamehere.wab” then right click it and change .wab to .old. Now, restart Outlook Express. It will create a new .wab file.
