At this point I think you should get Applejack...
After installing, Reboot holding down CMD+s, (+s), then when the DOS like prompt shows, type in...
Then let it do all 5 of it's things.
The 5 things it does are...
Correct any Disk problems.
Clear out Cache Files.
Repair/check several plist files.
Dump the VM files for a fresh start.
At least if it doesn't fix it, it'll eliminate a few questions.
I did as you suggested and consulted with several sophisticated Mac user friends re running the program. No luck. Running the Address Book "Find Duplicates" feature still freezes Address Book and results in a complete Address Book data loss requiring a rebuild. I had it back up of course so no harm done. My friends all said the same thing about the feature; that it's never worked for them either. What caused my sudden interest in the program was my recent purchase of an Iphone which displays ALL of the duplicates which makes it very difficult to easily local a contact while on the road. I wonder how to get in touch with one of the program developers for Address Book? Any other info would be helpful. Thanks anyway!
