How to Delete a Contact Name

Using Windows 7 / Skype 5:  There is no option to remove (delete) the contact names from the "all other contacts" list, when I right-click on any of the names.  The names are under a heading "all other contacts" which is my email contact list - people that do not use skype, that somehow skype has imported without my realizing it.  The remove capability is available for skype contacts, though.  Does anyone kbow how to remove these names?

Go to Skype -> Contacts and make sure that the option "Show Outlook contacts" is not selected.
