I don't know what antivirus program you have but, I have AVG and had the same issue
trying to open Free address Book. It turned out to be a comparability issue with
Windows 10. The reason why AVG blocked Free Address Book was that the latest version of AVG is designed for Windows 10. So AVG will allow applications which are built for Windows 1O. Address book still has not developed a new build for Windows 10. That is the reason why AVG did not allow the application to run.
The solution is simple. Right click on the AddressBook.exe file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\GAS Softwares\Free Address Book directory, select Properties, click the Compatability tab and then click the box under Compatability Mode. Click OK to exit and then run Free Address Book. If the program executes properly you are done. After closing the program a pop-up window will appear asking if the program runs allright in the Compatability Mode. Click Yes and all is well.
