No dear, I found it under Windows Live Contacts. As far as I know it should be MS Exchange Database file. I am working with IT Forensic things, I just need to know if there is any important information inside the file like it is in the "members.stg". I hope you understand what I mean ...

Thanks again,
I tried without success. When I open it by notepad, I can see some information, like emailaddress in this format e'x'a'm'p'e'l'@'h'o't'm'a'i'l'.'c'o'm' or other information like passport, MobilePhoneCountryCode etc.
It reminds me very much a list of contacts on MSN "members.stg", I wished I could decrypt the "contacts.edb" like "members.stg". I believe every "contacts.edb" contains a list of contacts for each Windows Live User. Then you are right that the OS is Vista.
