Clearing all Contacts from ACT! 2008 and linking Contacts to Companies

Dear all, I've been using ACT! 2008 and ran into a problem whilst importing the majority of contacts (Duplicates, missing fields, etc).  There's a large number of contacts that need removing from the database, but whenever I try and do this by selecting Tag All then delete, the program just crashes.  Is there a command or program that will do this for me? Also, I'll have to import the data again.  Is there a way to get the system to automatically link the contacts to their related companies? Thanks in advance

It sounds like there may have been a problem with the import. You could try from the tools manu and database maintenance to reindex your database may resolve the crashing when deleting problem.
