Default Contact Form Help, Please.

OS =Windows XP
MS Outlook 2003 (11.5608.5606)

Hello, I'm new to this forum and fairly new to using MSO 2003, please forgive me if my questions seem rather naive.
I would like to ask the members for some basic assistance, I had a requirement for a simple PIM and communications database for my customers and decided to use the Contacts facility within MS Outlook 2003 for the purpose, I repair and sell watches and straps ( I'm retired and it keeps me busy), with this in mind I designed and published a Contacts 'form' within MSO 2003, a process which took me quite a long time, however my requirement was for something very simple and it was quite a pleasure to rise to the challenge of accomplishing what I wanted......please see attached screenshot....which shows the basic form.
I've been using it successfully integrated with Skype for about the past 8 months and have created around 500 Contacts...or...( items) using "My Form".
Recently my PC was infected with the 'AntiVirus XP2008" trojan / virus, which hi-jacked my Task Manager, Regedit and File Search functions, I've used virtually every available AV / Spyware / AdAware program and have been moderately successful with removing it, however one or two constantly annoying items remain which I could remove manually if I could access the registry but the virus / trojan program and my limited knowledge is preventing me from doing so, therefore I've admitted defeat and decided on a re-format with an upgrade to MS Office 2007
My questions are.
A) Can I ?.... and how do I backup the 'form...My Form' that I created along with all the data (500+ contacts or 'items' ) for re-installing on the new MSO 2007 that I intend upgrading to once the format is completed ?
B) I have a laptop that I use when travelling, can I backup 'My Form' and export it somehow to the laptop as a simple 'synchronisation' that I can browse the form when not at my main PC ?
Thank you in advance for any assistance that may be rendered.
PS..please bear in mind that I am a silver surfer and not a developer of sorts, however I do like a challenge, it keeps my synapses firing.
