Samsung Contacts Editor - Edit Samsung Contacts on PC

Q: When I installed ICS, I failed to recognize that there was a setting that got changed to auto sync my contacts with (something?) and now, I've got multiple copies of various contacts as well as a bunch of contacts for people I don't even know who must be on FaceButt or something (Need to get FB off of the phone, it's nothing but trouble - but that's another thread, I guess).
