I set my 3gs up as a new phone and lost all off my contacts is there a way of getting them back?

Well i was told by an apple guy at the store to restore my phone as a new one to remove al bugs. so i did and lost all of my contacts so i am trying to find out if i can find my contacts somewhere on my computer so i can re-enter them.

If you had previously configured to sync Contacts with outlook, google or yahoo contacts, you can do the same to recover your contacts.
Otherwise two options:
Restore from backup. Right click your iPhone under 'Devices' on iTunes left Pane and select 'Restore from Backup'. Pick the old backup date and restore.  But then this will bring back your old issue you had on your iPhone.
The other option is to use a third party software to extract info from your backup folder. 
iPhone Backup Extractor, you can download a free version with limited capability of a paid Registered version: 
Here are locations of your backup folder.
Win7 - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\Mobile Sync\Backup
Vista - C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mobile Sync\Backup
Winxp- C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Apple Computer\Mobile Sync\Backup
