    my english is not good,i hope u can understand what i mean

    i was changed the name of "address book" to "contacts" , and it works well
    but today i can not launch the address book and ichat
    i click the app, and it doesn't work,blink in the dock for 1 second and quit imediately

    i repaired the disk premissions and still the same issue
    my friend told me to delete all the ".plist" files of address book
    and i did it,but doesn't help

    First thing to try is renaming it back to address book and see if the works. Try a reboot after that...

    Well you know you will lose anyone in your address book. With that in mind I would think You would have to boot from your disks that came with your computer. I never did this so I am going to leave the rest up to the experts to answer...
