Enable show all files and copy it directly from your flash drive to here.
C:\Docs & settings\username\Aplication Data\Microsoft\Address book

Seen this happen if you try to export the address book from File/Export / Address book etc. You really need to open the Address Book and export it from there.

Do you have a copy of the original OS/ Drive ?

If you have done a full XP update, all available updates, the problem"may" be one patch - Read the following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917288
