I did this another way. Didn''t download a program specifically to backup Android contacts,calendars and tasks though. I was already syncing my Android to Outlook (2-way sync) using EVO Collaborator add-in) and this also allows me to make a backup very easily and save it to my PC. MUCH EASIER.
USB won''t debug... So nothing works... Now what???

Right click the Task Manager on your computer. Find MobileGoserves. End it. Then, uninstall it.
After installing this on my PC, found out it is a 15-day trial. Now even after un-installing the program it is still running. The program files are still there. Have to manually clean up my system.
it works great, thanks

Jillianstewart, you can view call logs by trying Notepad++.
Once you have done the back up of Call Logs to your PC, what program so you have to download in order to view the call logs from your computer? I have tried Acrobat reader, Word and none work. Any suggestions? Thanks
