System deletes wrong contact is list view

ACT 2009 (V11)


More than once when displaying multiple contacts in a list the contact I select to be deleted remains and the contact next on the list gets zapped. The first time I thought it was me.. the second time I now know it a bug.

Hello yourkard,
This is not a reported issue with ACT! 2009. Possible causes:
- Damaged ACT! preferences file. Follow the steps in the bottom half of this KB article to manually rebuild the preferences file:

- Database issues. Does the same thing happen in the Demo database (ACT11Demo) or a new database? Try running maintenance from within ACT! (Tools > Database Maintenance > Check and Repair).

- If using Windows 7 or Windows Vista, disable User Account Control (UAC). For instructions, see the KB article below that applies to your operating system:

Windows Vista:

Windows 7:

Please note that ACT! 2009 is not supported on Windows 7.
