    I was messing with my address book prefs and then i clicked on the sharing icon.(I am not currently connected to internet) Address book then froze and I got the beach ball. After a min or so i force quit. From then on each time I select preferences it freezes, after a min or so the beachball goes and you can use address book again but the prefs never come up.

    Look at others who have had this problem I found the com.apple......adress.plist thing and trashed it and opened prefs again but it still froze. Is it automatically opening the sharing bit as thats the last one I clicked on?

    Can any one help?

    Thanks

    Try disconnecting your Network Connections in System Preferences and then reopen Address Book's Preferences. :)

    Thanks, as always, Mad Jew. I will try out as soon as I get home from work - 5hours to go!

    EDIT: yep - that worked - thanks a lot!
