At what exact point do you get the error?
When you press the "Add Contact Picture" button in the Contacts window, when selecting the picture, when pressing the "Open" button after selecting the picture, when saving the contact, or...?

What is being logged to the Event Viewer about this crash?


when i click on the add pic my pictures folder opens and the left hand side has ? marks in the boxes the file type lists all of the ext ie: *.bmp, *.jpg, ect.

Check the Service Pack 2(SP-2) for Office 2007 under Help-> About Microsoft Office 2007. If you do not have SP-2, try to Install SP-2 from the below link.

If you still face the same issue, restart the computer in windows clean boot and check how it works.

Refer the link to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" state:-

Note: clean boot will disable the third party applications so after the clean boot is done make sure you enable the third party applications back on the computer.
