Search your PC for outlook.exe.  Once you know where it is, browse to that location through a command prompt and run:

outlook /cleanreminders

Ok, that rules out curruption in the reminders folder.  You could either be looking at a corrupt calendar entry or a problem accessing the public folder server.  
The next question would be, does this happen from more than one location?  If it does then its not a local profile or Outlook problem.  
Also, does it happen to any other users?  If it does then you could be looking at a system folder problem.  If its just you, its likely you have a corrupt calendar entry.  
You could export the calendar data to csv, export the mailbox data with exmerge (excluding the calendar data), create a new mailbox, then import the data.  
The reason I say use csv is that exmerge will bring calendar item corruption with it when exported.

Take a look at the network connection.  Are you still able to do other network functions after this happens?  Does it happen to anyone else on the same hub?  If you change your connection to a different hub connection does it stop?  Is it only during high usage times?

It was a corrupt reoccuring calendar entry.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Marc.
